A nice and warm little outfit today !
I’m wearing a navy blue and green leopard woolen dress. I love this association.
Incidentally, I went all the way until the shoes with a blue pair.
A word about my Violeta by Mango coat, the Mango collection that offers sizing expansion until (french) size 52.
This coat is entirely hand-finished, I for now was quite surprised when I received it, its feel and finishing touches are like those of a Marina Rinaldi cashmere blend coat. But it’s not the same price.
I’ve wanted to give you my opinion about Violeta by Mango for some time now.
First of all, Violeta is not a PlusSize collection, it really is just sizing expansion. It’s important to stress that to fully understant the rest.
The collection was made for curvy women from (french) size 44.
The pieces are of good quality, the finishing touches are great, classic chic style with more and more trendy pieces, but yet still sober. It’s the Spanish chic, in line with Zara, to give you an idea.
When the first collection was launched, there was a pretty obvious sizing problem. The brand paid close attention to the remarks and they adjusted their tactics.
Today, Mango’s sizes run better at arms level, but they still have a little trouble mastering certain fabrics and linings. If you have wide hips, or chubby thighs, you can forget about hoping to get inside dresses and pants from Violeta. But there are exceptions, my advise is go to the store to get a clearer picture.
But we’ll get there, it’s already the second time that I talk with the brand and they’re constantly growing and improving.
Once again, designing PlusSize clothing is not something you improvise, it requires savoir-faire and really being able to listen to the customer base. Mango holds all the cards.
I’m confident Mango will make it ! I really like their collection and it’s already a big hit in France, it’s the best motivation.
