It all started on a trip in 1983. It is not known whether by necessity or by a creative impulse, the Swiss Thomas Meyer used pieces of used pants to make a denim jacket. The garment was very successful and was the basis of the fashion brand that Thomas founded in 1984 with his brother Christian. In 1986 they opened the first store in Ibiza, and the company had 40 employees that year. That jacket has become a complete line of fashion, and from the first store and 40 employees, Desigual has grown to have more than 400 stores on four continents, around 2,700 employees and a presence in 107 countries. Desigual headquarters are located in the Barceloneta quarter of Barcelona, ​​in a unique location by the sea.

The name of the brand, the first logo

The name of the Desigual brand came from an idea of ​​the film director Isabel Coixet. The first logo, that of the robots, was the work of graphic designer Pere Torrent, better known as Peret. A motto was missing to close the circle. "It's not the same" was the first. Name, logo and motto helped boost the image of this unique, fresh, colorful, optimistic, imaginative and original fashion brand that decided to dress people and not bodies.
