On 12 March 2012, MANGO, Spain’s most international fashion brand, presented its Spring/Summer 2012 Collection entitled Shades of Pales in Shanghai, in lieu with MANGO’s expansion plan in China.
The fashion show took place at the iconic Shanghai International Exhibition Centre, which is situated in the heart of Shanghai.
And the theme of the show revolved around clean, sleek minimalist silhouettes that were presented as an invasion of white and pastel tones; which were likened to strength of light, the vitality of faded tones and the intensities as well as the luminosity of subtle silver and gold, which serve as great contrasting colours. The collection is made up of easy-to-wear pieces that combine classic elements with retro sportswear, forming the MANGO’s suit and casual lines.
The special guest star of the fashion show was Amber Le Bon (daughter of iconic supermodel Yasmin Le Bon & Simon Le Bon, legendary musician of Duran Duran), who was also the main attraction of the after-party, where she was in charge of the DJ set.
” I am very excited about working with MANGO, I have known the brand for a long time and love its style. The spring collection is fresh, feminine and very cool, something you can easily wear. “
– Amber Le Bon
