Fashion collaborations are having a bit of a moment, and it feels like every month another brand announces that it’s joining forces with a high-profile industry name. As a fashion editor it’s easy to become cynical about these powerhouse pairings, but every now and then one comes along that hits the nail on the head. This month? It’s Mango’s collaboration with Scandi It girl Pernille Teisbaek.
As one of the ‘original’ influencers, I’ve genuinely loved Pernille’s clean-lined yet statement-making style ever since I joined Instagram, and it’s this elevated approach to basics that winds its way through her Mango edit, manifesting in immaculate tailoring, versatile tank tops and flattering jeans. “I was thinking about the woman, the mother, the girl”, Pernille explains. “It was important that we responded to the versatility and ease that busy, modern women need from their wardrobes. For me, that’s about good materials and good, timeless fits”.
I had a chance to try on some of the key pieces from the collection, which drops today. As an outwear-lover, I was obsessed with the boxy white blazer, which pairs perfectly with the straight leg jeans, and the beautiful navy tailored coat with its nipped-in waist and dramatic sleeves.
