These 7 Mango Pieces Will Refresh Your Autumn Wardrobe


 It’s easy to think that the fashion community as one big, trend factory, but it’s a diverse mosaic of varying style subcultures. One of which I frequently find myself referencing is the chic, cool girl. That is a broad category, it’s a bit of a fearless standout, a bit of trying something new, but mixing in classic pieces as well. And it most importantly, echoes downtown sensibility. You’ll find equal parts vintage and semi dressy trends in their closet, along with some incredible items you can’t take your eyes off. In short, you feel like it’s the kind of crowd to look to when you need to express your own individuality. Best of all, the incredible, gorgeous pieces are all from Mango


To have the it-girl fashion scene down, you must be able to emerge victorious and make it seem naturally effortless. And what better way to do this right than refresh for the autumn season. The popularity of nostalgia mixed with a bit of retro is a style that we can’t turn away from. With bold prints, classic takes on a true classic, to just fun versatile fashion, Mango’s styling house has got you covered.

Mango Coat

Wool coats take over autumn wardrobes always, but what happens when you make a wool coat into a soft pastel colour? You get pure style genius. A pastel hue is underhand off for fall. But with the right colour story and styling, this lavender coat will be perfection.

Brand Spotlight: 5 Reasons To Love Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney

The brand being spotlighted this month is Stella McCartney. She happens to be the daughter off Paul McCartney, from the British band The Beatles. But don’t let her seemingly posh background fool you. She knows her way around mixing feminine styles, with sharp tailored edges. And most importantly, she knows exactly no matter your background, or culture what it feels like to be a woman.

Her ways of adding that feminine touch, makes all her garments look so beautiful to the touch. You can really see and feel a mixed sense of emotions. Most importantly, you feel what it is like to step into her world. McCartney defines what it means to be an authentic designer. She echoes an elegant spirit that is present in the pieces she puts out. Most of all, you can see the lightness off her especially, when she speaks so highly about her mum being a major inspiration to her.

Her menswear background is phenomenal

After graduating, she shadowed Savile Row tailor, Edward Sexton to learn more about the craft. She is renewed for her sharp, simple tailoring with a feminine edge and considerable approach to wearable design."It's not about what it looks like in the studio or on the runway," "It's what it looks like on a real person that matters. That isn't easy, but it's what's fun."

She's an environmentalist and supporter of animal rights

Following in the footsteps of her mother Linda, She is a fearless supporter of animal rights and a strict vegetarian. She refuses to use leather or fur in any of her designs, instead her shoes are made of vinyl or plastic and all belts and bags made from raffia and fabric.

She collaborated with Adidas

She launched a joint-venture line with Adidas, establishing a long-term partnership with the cooperation, in September 2004. The collection called simply Adidas by Stella McCartney, has since grown to include a wide range of different sportswear including yoga, tennis, winter sports and golf.

Her handbags are amazing

She always pulls from different sources of inspiration, that takes a true innovative artist to do. As a designer, she knows how to make a handbag, which is a must-have accessory into something fun, interesting, and very feminine. 

Logo Mania

She kicks the logo trends arse

Logo mania is always going to be a trend. Whether we are all for it or not. But one thing is for sure, McCartney knows how to work the logo thing to her advantage. Not only does her bold logo look cool, and not tacky, but she touches on classic styles, as well as street wear, and fully kicks its arse, without apologising which I absolutely love.

Paris Fashion Week: Saint Laurent Decided To Seduce Us


“Take me out, it’s chic outside,” said an upbeat Heather Noire when asked to summarise Saint Laurent’s collection’s mood show to the coveted Paris Fashion Week. Eager like the rest of us to leave behind the doom and gloom for the past two years and “feel the heat of the romantic lines, dripping in seduction from the 2022 collection that just made sense.” The cue from the modern tailoring, sexy silhouettes, seduced body-con looks that were a blend of tainted rock roll. And the ever so cool stylish, women that rocked the runway in front of the Eiffel Tower as the most powerful backdrop of confidence and allure.  

The collection was mystifying and kept to Saint Laurent’s true iconic roots. The all-black pieces were anything but boring, with new shapes on an old idea. The hues, prints, were a pop of energy and joy that echoed throughout the line. The attitude heard was, “A woman should please herself, flaunt what she has, and add an accessory.”

While the Parisian fashion house is known for beautiful bags for evening-the structured shapes, the tiny sizes, the glam materials! -there’s no question that when it comes to the humble clutch, it can be a pain to carry around especially on a night of adventure. If it doesn’t have a detachable strap, you’re stuck either juggling it with everything else you’re using or tucking it as elegantly as possible underneath your arm. For Saint Laurent’s Anthony Vaccarello, has a brand-new proposition: Just keep in the middle! 

 That’s right, when it comes to coming up with a useful concept especially for the French fashion house, you take your elegant, sleek clutch and push it beneath your waistband; not only will that free up your hands, but it’ll also help show off your fancy belt.

Turns out, the inspiration for the brand’s latest wares delves deep into a lightbulb moment in founder Yves Saint Laurent’s career, when he was transfixed by Paloma Picasso’s infectious, free-wheeling spirit. To honour her legacy, Vaccarello took a cue from the designer’s creative sartorial takes and proficient mixing off masculine and feminine codes, imbued with a certain je ne sais quoi that struck just the right amount of scandalous.

Vaccarello made his intention clear in the show notes. “For a long time, I wanted to transpose this meeting between Paloma Picasso and Yves Saint Laurent, whose importance few realize in the designer’s creative journey. It is a moment to which I am sensitive as a designer, because for me it is the defining moment when Saint Laurent’s fashion creativity became a style.” 

To quote YSL model Inès de La Fressange, “The secret of great style is to feel good in what you wear.” You’ll be hard-pressed to find a look here that doesn’t accomplish this.
