Mango Gets Into the Bohemian Spirit for Spring 2016

Tie-dye prints, relaxed lines and billowy gowns… Mango unveils its Bohemian Spirit April 2016 lookbook, alternating casual-chic proposals with more sensual, yet always hippy-chic and exquisitely embroidered ensembles. Mango’s Bohemian Spirit spring 2016 lookbook took Dutch model Esti van Balen to Cadaqués, a precious coastal town in Costa Brava, in the province of Girona, Spain, along with Belgium-born Barcelona/Paris-based fashion photographer Quentin de Briey, who perfectly captured the whole bohemian essence of the Spanish brand translating it into an even more relaxed, sun-soaked mood.

De Briey also gave this lookbook an artistic, one-of-a-kind turn, thanks to his attention to details, passion for uncontaminated landscapes and vintage-looking pictures that are one of his hallmarks. Besides working in and out of his studios for many international labels, De Briey has a long-time collaboration with Vogue Spain, where you can get acquainted with his exquisite work. Like most of Quentin de Briey’s editorial campaigns, this Mango pictorial also deals more with art rather than being mere advertising means, as the landscape, the models and the outfits look like shots from another, glamorous era.

This has, of course, to do with Mango’s choice to focus on easy-to-wear garments in vibrant, color-blocking and ton-sur-ton earthy colors as well, as they quickly change their appearance becoming haute couture kind of pieces, especially thanks to the loads of frills, intricate crochet embroideries and lovely openwork detailing that decorate most of the proposals. Aside from the vast array of colorful ensembles, Mango came up also with some dreamlike total white proposals that could be worn either at the seaside or at one of these upcoming summery parties, ranging from short late-Sixties-inspired models to airy A-line dresses.

Decorative embroideries, cutouts and lace appliqués flirtatiously get along pretty well with the collection’s casual denim jackets and feminine accessories, among which it will be very hard to choose the metallic golden or the silver ones. Aside from the bracelets, this Bohemian Spirit lookbook doesn’t rely that much on a boho-approved accessory line, denoting the label’s willingness to prove ‘less is more’ indeed especially when it comes to summer boho looks. That’s also the case for the clothing line itself, wherein lightweight fabrics almost solely cover the models’ bodies acting as elegant ladylike frocks or waist-hugging strap dresses. As for the latter, it’s indeed with the strappy dresses that Mango fully goes into its sexiest mode, yet always choosing to bare either the upper parts with large, plunging sleeveless sides, or the legs with short hems.

Button-up denim skirts emphasize the campaign’s playful atmosphere, while the back-stitched leather strap sandals complete most of the looks accentuating their boho-chic appeal. Cropped silhouettes, along with zigzagged navy sweaters, crop style wide-leg trousers and skirts with ruffled hems add a marine vibe to the entire collection, making it possible for those who prefer cozier pieces when it comes to summer, to combine easiness with a Sixties-inspired, Provence-based glamorous style.
