Mango: How it got its groove again (aka why we love it so much this year)

The high street brand has been on a roll this year, churning out plenty of hits and must-haves for both its S/S’18 and F/W’18 collections

No one wants to be irrelevant - especially if you are a high street label. Because if you are not in the business of attracting the masses with accessible prices, then what’s your business?

Mango knows that. That’s why, after seasons of been-there-done-that fashion, it got back its former product design manager, Justicia Ruano (she left in 2006 after 12 years at the label), to get back in form with a knock-it-out-of-the-park S/S’18. And now, a solid F/W.

How much is it back in form? In Ruano’s words, it’s now about “timeless garments that are less based on big trends, which will only last a couple of months”. Translation: Go to Mango not for disposables but for updated classics worth championing.
