About MANGO: MANGO is Spain’s second-largest exporter of women’s fashion. Its concept is based on an alliance between a quality product, in accordance with the latest fashion trends, and an affordable price. The brand image is reinforced by its company-owned stores, which represent the calling card for the brand and create a dynamic atmosphere in accordance with the personality of its customers.
With this new Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, MANGO is taking a fresh look at the all-time classics of British country style: trench coats, double-breasted jackets and well-tailored coats, without forgetting both basic and thicker, chunky handmade knits.
Combining these items in a carefree way takes us back to the late 70′s, rich textures of tweeds, corduroy and furs, combined with flowing silks and gold highlights, create a contrast between masculine and feminine, giving a new meaning to wardrobe classics.
This 70s revival also brings changes in proportions. It emphasises the waist, combines flowing blouses with structured outerwear, and introduces longer skirts and wider trousers. A touch of Boho energy is also added with paisleys, geometric jacquards and floral prints in offbeat colour combinations.
The search for timeless classics is also reflected in the colour palette. A perfect combination between elegant and traditional camel, grey and navy blue forms the base for this season’s colour palette, with hints of more country-inspired tones such as warm browns and winter reds.
About this contest:
Mango seeks bloggers with a keen interest in MANGO’s fashion apparel and collections, someone who is able to bring a fresh, trendy and innovative touch to the brand and the What Should I Wear by MANGO website.
Given MANGO’s abstract on its AW 2010 collection and the representations of the late 70s style, my own sentiments of MANGO’s apparels and accessories always fit the description of “effortlessly stylish”, “glamorous chic” and oozing with “subtle ferosh”.

A MANGO store in Barcelona – amazing retail experience!
I’ve been loving and wearing MANGO since my college days, never forgetting my purchases or even the pieces I’ve tried on because they are slightly expensive for my age (mid-teens), but always worth the “investments” – I go for unique, silhouette flattering cuts and MANGO never fails to offer that. The choice of colours, designs and prints or patterns on their apparels and accessories impress me, and needless to say the quality of products is extremely praise-worthy too.
I remember lugging several outfits into the changing rooms and staring at myself in the mirror…imagining myself to be the next top model parading down the runway in them. They look so good – the soft, choice fabrics, figure enhancing blazers and pants, perfectly tailored vests and pretty dresses that send little bits of adrenaline rushing through my body in awe.
That’s what I call a love for fashion, and a love for MANGO.
