If you ask me whose wardrobe I’d like to raid, Leandra Medine’s is way up there. The Man Repeller editor dresses for herself and nobody else, and her style is bold but wearable, eccentric but chic. So when I first heard she was collaborating with high street favourite Mango on a 60s-inspired collection, I was so there for it.
Now it’s finally launched and I can safely say I wasn’t disappointed. She describes the pieces as ‘a New Year break in a European ski resort combined with an American university campus in the 60s’ and as such the capsule is full of jewel buttons, feathers, colourful embroideries, sequins in sheer blouses and bold prints.
My favourite pieces include this jewel-button trench coat, beaded tassel hem shorts and chunky cardigan. But the collection doesn’t stop there, as Leandra has delved into accessories too, which include chunky gold chains and diamante earrings, velvet sandals and dad-style loafers.
Some of the collection has sold out already, however you can still get your hands on some of the gorgeous pieces, so if you want to emulate the fashion influencer’s luxe New York style, now’s the time. Or, like me, you can wait for the invite to raid Leandra’s closet, I’m sure it’s in the post…
