Mango is backing the boho, tribal and nautical trends this season, as paisley-print dresses, full skirts and ruffle blouses sit alongside white blazers with navy trims and stripey jersey separates. The retailer’s designer collaborations with Adam Lippes and Penelope and Monica Cruz take pride of place in store, with the latter comprising tailored, more structured pieces like short jackets and dresses.
The front third of the store is made up of trend-led product and the designer collaborations, while smarter product, including boot leg trousers, pencil skirts and blouses, make up another third. The rest is given over to denim, basics and knitwear, which are displayed on standalone tables.
Mannequins are positioned at the front of the store, showing-off well-chosen, on-trend pieces. The store itself is clean and well laid out, with each section, from trend to product categories, clearly displayed. The changing rooms are quite narrow and there are no seats or stools.
The designer ranges are good value, with an Adam Lippes stripey knit dress at £39 and a cotton and linen mix dress for £55 at the Penelope and Monica Cruz range. Basics are well priced too – cardigans start at £18 – while jeans are around £38. A kimono style floral silk and cotton mix dress is excellent value at £40.
