Mango Follows Up Last Year’s Launch With Another ‘Committed Collection’
In March 2017, Mango launched their first 'Committed Collection', wanting to go with the times and make their contribution towards a slightly more sustainable fast fashion scene. Every effort is of course an important step forward, and now they’re releasing edition number four.
For Committed Collection IV, model and artist Saskia De Brauw is captured wearing the fall capsule surrounded by the natural splendor of Aiguas Tortas national park in Spain, located close to the French border. The natural, biodegradable and recycled materials in the collection – key fibers being wool, viscose and tencel – reference the simplistic beauty and calmness of this nature, just like the earthy color palette. However, this doesn’t mean that the collection is completely free of conventional, “unsustainable” fibers, meaning that non-organic virgin cotton, acrylic, polyamide and polyester has still managed to sneak into the textile blends. Well, better rarely equals perfect.
Visually, the collection is rather striking, with simple yet elegant silhouettes fit for the conscious woman’s carefully curated wardrobe. And most pieces are actually timeless in the word’s true sense, which should definitely make them last well beyond this season. If we’re playing favorites, the white wrap coat, brown V-neck dress and white suit does stand out in our minds, and we’re not at all opposed to the resin and brass earrings.
