European fashion brand Mango has collaborated with renowned designer Victoria Beckham on a spring summer capsule collection.

A perfect blend of British luxury, Beckham’s immaculate style and Mango’s contemporary design, the collaboration celebrates the two brands’ shared values of style, quality and femininity.

Inspired by the 1969 film La Piscine, the collection takes its cues from 70s style to propose a versatile day-to-night wardrobe. At its core are impeccably cut tailoring, feminine lingerie dresses, knitwear and accessories.

Crafted from natural fabrics such as linen, cotton and silk, wardrobe staples are reinterpreted as clean, luxe pieces in a neutral palette of white, black, ecru, butter with touches of blue, peach or mauve pink.

Tailoring is the cornerstone of the collection, with perfectly cut patterns on blazers, sharp shoulders, and waists, paired with extra-long trousers in relaxed flare cuts.

A selection of flowing, slip dresses with bias cuts and outer seams or snail ruffles also feature throughout the collection, as do themes of transparency and lingerie-inspired details.

To be launched on April 23 exclusively at Mango Mid Valley, the capsule coincides with Mango’s 40th anniversary. For more details, visit here..
