Spanish term or phrase: incógnita
Se trata de un aviso publicitario por radio y lo explican así:


Voz en off femenina:

Lo que le contaste ayer a tu amiga ya no es un secreto.
Lo que sí es un secreto es el de los estilistas internacionales. (Nombre de la marca).

¿A qué se refiere con "incógnita"? Para mí no hay incógnita (mystery/puzzle/riddle) alguna, si al final nombran la marca...¿Será un término publicitario? ¿Any ideas?
Gracias por adelantado, amigoZ

In my opinion, it means "incognita" (it is a noun, an adj., and an adverb in English, meaning something that is hidden). Here I think it refers not to the brand being named but to the secrets of the designers (their designs are a secret, are not made public).
