Teaming up for fall: Spanish label Desigual and legendary couturier Christian Lacroix. WWD reports that the line was shown in Barcelona this week: "The line is being billed as Desigual by Monsieur Lacroix, as the French designer is no longer authorized to use his full name since leaving the brand he founded. The Barcelona-based company—known for its colorful patchwork looks for women, men and children—said it was made up of some 30 items, including jackets, skirts and lingerie, and would be followed by a larger collection for summer 2012."
