I found out a while ago that Spanish Fashion Brand MANGO are launching a plus size range in February 2014. Obviously I was excited about the news but only after seeing more excited tweets about it yesterday did I start to think about what they would actually create!
I admire Mango and their straight classic looks. Very sharp and a little edgy. I would love to wear their stuff to work looking quite chic and strident. The only problem is, it doesn’t fit me!
I hope they keep the classic look going but don’t do the usual leggings and over sized jumper / shirt look. It’s boring now and the plus-size market is far more fashion conscious than ever before. Obviously there are still lots of questions to be answered and things still to be confirmed. Will the range be bigger than a size 18? Will it be available in all stores? The list goes on. But hopefully these will be answered in due course.
The Mango Plus size Range isn’t being launched until Spring / Summer 2014. But here is my ”Plus Size wish List’’ of what I would currently like to be able to wear from their metropolitan styled designs.
1. Belt colour block dress 2. Rhombus jacquard suit trousers 3. Contrasting panels chiffon blouse
4. Stud pattern sweater 5. Crystal detail blouse 6. Floral print flared skirt
7. Faux leather detail cardigan
A huge well done to Mango for having the initiative to step up to Plus Size. They might just lead the way for other slim cut style retailers.
What do you think on Mango taking the step into Plus Size Fashion? Will it work?
