I already wrote a few times about the Violeta collection from Mango. The plus size sister of Mango. Finally I visited Mango in Maastricht and I could try the items and I got this real shop experience. I think it’s great they offer this collection. Because most of the Mango items are way too small for women with size 42 Eu, 12 U and up. So Violeta is a great chance to buy the style.
What me made soooo happy is the large range of blazers and jackets. Longer blazers, which are missing in many plus size collections of other brands. Well done, Mango team!
Check it out online… in SALE now!
But… I saw not many great items I like for myself. I was already surprised that it’s such a basic collection. And seeing it in real life, it was very basic and casual indeed. For a real fashionista, I like the Mango collection more. That’s why I’m asking: WHY IS VIOLETA SO DIFFERENT? The sizes are very small. I had to wear an XL.
I am a little confused… why can’t the designers team of Mango just extend some great shape fashion items from the Mango collection for the Violeta collection? Yes, it is possible. You just have to watch the shape and make a plus size version.
Violeta is soooo much more expensive. Why is this? I know, during my own designing and making my own label, I needed more fabric for the larger sizes. But the quality is the same as Mango, so the prices could be almost the same. Why are plus size women punished now to spend more money on an item when the ‘normal Mango collection’ is the same quality.
Wearing this great dress, felt very very well! The shape was perfect and creates a real hourglass figure! Now in sale…
