It is safe to say that everyone has dreamed of a fun in the sun kind of vacation in the tropics away from the hum drum of every day life. However, it’s not like that is in everyone’s grasp or budget for that matter and if you are currently on vacation or living in the Tokyo area, a trip to the sandy beaches and crystal waters of Okinawa might be out of the question. Even so, that does not mean that you can’t bring a little island flare and vibrancy into your wardrobe! Thank goodness for the Desigual clothing line that has a store conveniently located outside Meijijingumae train station in Omotesando which is ever so close to the other shopping paradise of Harajuku’s Takeshita-dori. Not only are the fun fabrics and colors wallet friendly, they also give you that sense of island fun.
When you hear the hip and happen’ music pouring out into the streets from the doors of Desigual, you know that you just have to take a look inside. The windows and decor are also dressed to impress with beaded garlands and palm fronds to really accentuate that island feel. Not only will the remixes of Pitbull and J-Lo catch your attention, but the comfy armchairs and dark wood panelling will welcome you with open arms for a nice relaxation minute until you see the clothing available on the sales floor. Not one colored stripe is out of place in Desigual. The easy breezy fabulous fabrics are both well constructed and fashionably constructed and put together and also lends itself to extreme wearability. Both the experienced and amateur shopper will feel at home here in Desigual. Men do not have to fret! Desigual has a little of the island for them too. Men can find themselves immersed in floral linen button downs and comfy cargo shorts. If our male shopping friends are looking for something a little more constructed, Desigual offers light blazers and outerwear that would be perfect for the resort’s raw bar.
If you are in the area of Omotesando and are in the mood for something a little off the beaten concrete path, be sure to check out Desigual for a little sand between your toes.
