My MANy Bags News #27

Mango Has A New Collaboration...'Adam For Mango'

The trend of collaboration with designers seems to be heating up. Comme Des Garcons for LV and H&M among the most recent. Now Spanish label, Mango has tapped into the creative brains of American Designer Adam Lippes (He's very cute and his own line 'ADAM' is gorgeous as well!) for a limited edition capsule collection 'Adam for Mango' for 2 seasons. I am excited about these clean cut designs with a subdued but interesting palette. Soft greys, summery beige are contrasted with black. Loving the sandals as well. What I am most attracted is that the collection has no branding all over and features a sleek minimal look with sharp cuts! The limited edition clothes will be in stores in March and early September for spring and autumn collections respectively. Thanks to www.selectism.com for the heads up:-)

DNR reports in on the Adam Lippes capsule line for Mango.

“A year after opening its first U.S. store in New York, the Spanish fast-fashion retailer Mango has collaborated on limited-edition capsule lines with designer Adam Lippes. The American designer will produce two collections for both men and women for the spring/summer 2009 and autumn/winter 2009 seasons. The spring collection will arrive in stores March 15, and the autumn collection in early September.”

I think it should hit your shores if the Mango stores in melbourne stocks menswear.:-) Looks nice eh?

no menswear im afraid. i didn't even know Mango does menswear. i guess we'll miss out again. dang!

Kevin said...

Singapore stocks He By Mango menswear..but the huge logos is a turn off. However, sometimes you find gems...like last season's strappy sandals which I love! Should have gotten the other design as well.

Come to shop in Singapore! And Club 21 heaven awaits!
