Spotted (and striped): Snapchat filters are taking over New York Fashion Week

There are some great unresolved mysteries in life: why does it never rain if you bring an umbrella, but always rain if you don’t? How did Stonehenge come to exist? And why, oh why, can’t Snapchat filters exist IRL?

Well, Desigual has solved one of those dilemmas for us.

During their show at New York Fashion Week on Thursday, with the help of MAC, Desigual’s models bought the Snapchat filters to life.

And they looked AH-MAZING.

In fact, Desigual were all over the social media trends this Fashion Week. Inspired by the #NoFilter hashtag on social media, most of the models were wearing almost no makeup, while a lucky six were turned into real life Snapchat filters with the help of incredible face paint and paper crowns that would make even the Cara Delevingne swoon.

Thank you Desigual, for proving what we’d always suspected – that everyone looks gorgeous as a puppy.

And if we’re lucky, maybe at London Fashion Week another designer will explain how on Earth they built Stonehenge.
