MANGO, Spain's most international fashion brand, presented its new Autumn/Winter 2011 women's collection at the Centre Pompidou in Paris last night, in a fashion show hosted by Isak Andic, the Company Chairman.
The brand used this date with the world of fashion and culture to launch the avant-première of its film starring Kate Moss and Terry Richardson. Guests were able to enjoy the end of the film broadcast live from the Centre Pompidou itself, in which the model and the acclaimed photographer performed an original scene. The model, who attended the fashion show with Terry Richardson, declared: Working with MANGO was incredible, as was working with Terry Richardson. As for the collection, I have seen some items and they are great. They are easy garments to wear and you can combine them with anything.
The fashion show, produced by Alex de Betak, featured some outstanding models: Isabeli Fontana, the next image of the brand, Aymeline Valade, Ginta Lapina, Kasia Struss, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet, Anna Selezneva, Valentina Zeliaeva, Valerija Kelava and Sigrid Agren.
The event brought together celebrities from the Spanish and international world of fashion and society, including Tali Lennox, the Mexican blogger Andy Torres, the French actresses Alysson Paradis, Lea Drucker and Lou Lessage, the editor of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt, the French actor and model Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, Victoria Clay and Eric Elmosnino, Carolina Adriana Herrera, Naty Abascal, Luís Medina, Rafael Medina, Laura Vecino, Cari and Miriam Lapique, Boris Izaguirre, Olivia de Borbón, María García de la Rasilla, Jaime de Marichalar, Ana García Siñeriz, Alejandra de Rojas, Adriana Abascal, Laura Ponte, Genoveva Casanova, Paloma Segrelles, Patricia Rato, Anne Igartiburu, Rosauro Varo and Núria González, among others.
After the fashion show, MANGO offered a party-concert at Georges, the restaurant of the emblematic museum, which was attended by numerous celebrities of Parisian society and featured exclusive moments, such as the performance by the Belgian singer Selah Sue. The guests enjoyed a very Spanish cocktail, served by the French catering company Nomade, and music by some top DJs: Clovis Goux and Guillaume Sorge of Dirty Sound System.
In this Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, elements of day and night are combined to pay tribute to the classic wardrobe of the French woman, always chic, particularly the timeless contrasts of items that include male and female garments.
These versatile elements, which can extend from the day into the night, allow the incorporation of glitter, shiny details, gold, Swarovski crystals and sequins, which are applied to a range of fabrics, including wool, denim and bouclé.
At night, feathers take flight, while shiny details and sequins sparkle, combined with a carefree mix of classic and sporty elements, giving the night charisma and freedom.
The collection has also been given a passionate and romantic air, thanks to the use of lace and transparent fabrics, sometimes in bright red, alongside textures as rich as angora or leather. The elegant black lines participate in the game of contrasts, in combinations of shiny/matt or black/ivory, producing a more chic and seductive silhouette.
Sophistication and movement have not been overlooked, hence the use of animal print patchwork or irregular spots with very flowing forms.
