INSPIRATION: Mango A/W13 Collection



I know whilst the weather's hot I should just be focusing on summer (especially as it's such a rarity in this country!) but Mango's A/W Collection, modeled by Bette Franke, is looking alrite ain't it? These are two of my favourite looks, I love the Stella-esque pinstripes in outfit number one and I need to get myself a pair of those trousers...so chic! The second look is a little more out of my comfort zone but after hating it at first I've now totally fallen for the idea of Hedi Slimane's grunge revival at Saint Laurent although I wouldn't want to do it as literally as on the catwalk...I'm too much of a nerd for that! In small doses I think it's totally wearable, this leather skirt has truly captured my heart. However, apart from my beloved tweed coat, every time I've gone into Mango I've been left a little underwhelmed by the quality of their products. I swear, every time the new campaign pics come out I'm like 'MAN, Mango are on fire this season' but the real thing just doesn't live up to my expectations. I wish the actual items were as good in real life as they are photographed! Here's hoping I'll be proved wrong this season, because I really do want those trews...

  1. LOVE that buckle skirt. I always find it really difficult to buy things in Mango because it's all so classic. I adore everything leather though!

  6. I thought I was the only one, I see Mango ads and go in with high hopes but almost always leave empty handed and a bit disappointed. So I go and drown my sorrows in Zara. I'm not sure how I feel about the skirt, but i'm loiving the jumper xxx

  10. Yes yes yes, I picked up the catalogue in work yesterday and it is so good, especially the Miranda/Anna sections. Did you see the tartan skinny trousers?! You're right though, it's never the same in-store.
