MANGO, Spain’s most international fashion brand, presented its Spring/Summer 2013 collections at the Bonifacio High Street Central Amphitheater in Taguig, at a catwalk and cocktails party dubbed as MANGO MAGNIFIED.

Notable personalities in the Philippine fashion scene attended the event in their glamorous ‘summer gold’ attire as the brand also formally launched its new concept stores in the country and the new look of the MANGO RCBC-Bankard MasterCard, alongside the new collection.

This season, whites dominate over soft camaïeux in a single silhouette, while blacks are used to create a timeless graphic. Rigidity and fluidity are employed to achieve volume and proportion through exaggerated sashes which, accentuating the silhouette, give way to volumes of oriental inspiration. In menswear, these whites co-exist with soft indigos to create a smart and casual style fresco.

On this occasion, the catwalk featured over 80 outfits from MANGO, H.E. by MANGO, and MANGO Touch.

MANGO Touch, the brand’s premium line of accessories, opened the show with a vibrant display of gypsy-inspired pieces and on-trend tribal patterns and embellishments to amp up any look.

H.E. by MANGO followed suit with a gorgeous collection of classic and urban menswear. With smart and preppy checks and stripes shirts and casual trousers mixed with modern takes on outerwear such as cotton-washed trenches or jersey varsity jackets and accessories like skull-printed ties, the collection is a fresh juxtaposition of both classic and contemporary styles for modern men.

MANGO capped off the show with a three-part style segment of women’s fashion. The first collection featured a soft and cool tropical palette where pink, light peach and menthol were used on soft and fluid folky lines, re-embellished with crafty elements like crochets, guipures and laces. Then, vibrant colour combinations of aqua, blue, and yellow with ocean motifs in prints took the stage. Closing the show, natural fabrics in tone-to-tone summer whites with gold lurex for light and texture rocked the runway.

Guests were able to sample the delights of Bizu and Tous Les Jours and dance to the rhythms of Synima. The event was staged by SAGA events.
