Last night, the international launch of the MANGO Spring/Summer 2011 collection took place at the Crystal Gallery of the Cibeles Palace in Madrid. The firm presented its collection for men and women in a catwalk chaired by Isak Andic, the company Chairman, and before numerous celebrities, loyal followers of the brand at its presentations.

The new H.E by MANGO menвЂ™s collection returns this season with the same idea of combining sport and retro elements. A collection which reinterprets the classics, applying a slightly ethnic air to the garment interiors and finishes.
After the catwalk, MANGO offered a grand party-concert in the same Crystal Gallery, which featured the exclusive moments, such as the performance by Micky Green. The guests enjoyed a special cocktail for the occasion, served by Caritina GoyanesвЂ™ Six Sens.
COMMENTS BY OLIVIA PALERMO
вЂњI really like the collection, particularly the colours and the different garments in it, I really like the coats, the camel tone is very intense; perhaps the garment I like most is a camel coat which has a very wide neck.вЂќ
вЂњI donвЂ™t know how I became a fashion icon, someone took my picture and from then on I became famous, appearing on an MTV programme also helped; it is a major compliment for me, I always tell young girls they should be glamorous every day, it is a must.вЂќ
вЂњMy style has been influenced by the great women of fashion and old Hollywood films; I take quite a lot of inspiration from them and also from street chic; I observe street fashion, take photos of everything and this is reflected in my style.вЂќ
вЂњIвЂ™m currently working on a TV project, my own showвЂќ

вЂњIt has to be a fresh, modern and amusing woman, thatвЂ™s what people want today.вЂќ
