Penelope Cruz and sister unveil Mango range
If you happened to catch yesterday's Style magazine in The Sunday Times you may have noticed Penelope Cruz and her can-barely-tell-them-apart sister Monica, modelling their new range for Mango, example above. According to the article, the limited-edition collection features a mixture of "red-carpet-inspired evening wear, jeans, knits and daywear based on vintage pieces from their own wardrobes." "This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time. We just had to find the right people to do it with," said Penelope.
My verdict after looking at the collection, albeit briefly, is that it's quite lovely. The red carpet/vintage influence is strongly evident with faux fur wraps and a 1940s/50s black satin frock. I look forward to seeing the rest of the range and, of course, what it will be like price-wise. The sisters will launch their range at a party in Ibiza this month (I guess my invitation is still in the post!)
Penelope and Monica Cruz for Mango will be in-store from September 16th 2007.
