Mango's menswear - HE (Homini Emerito) - is gonna get a top designer collabo this March with the capsule collection by Adam Lippes. Who's he? Lippes began his career in public relations at Ralph Lauren, and trained as creative director at Oscar de la Renta. Now, with his own brand Adam, he's part of the prestigious fashion council and has had his collections exhibited in Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman.
So, what's the big deal with Adam Lippes for Mango? I think it's gonna be great with the injection of simple chic American look. Or even fusion with some Yankee-Spanish appeal. But judging with these pre-collection pixs, yes they do look simple. Yet, the hues of grey that dominates the color palettes is very urban. The suit kinda cool too. So as the half-buttoned top. And I will get the leather sandals anyway (rumoured to be only £35).
I'll wait this weekend to take a tried-and tested session again at their Oxford St. store if they gonna stock it on the rails.
