Chelsea Hansford: The designer would shop for these highlight pieces from the Mango collection herself
The “Mango x Simon Miller” collection includes a total of 73 pieces. Designer Chelsea Hansford revealed her personal must-haves to us – which also lend a California vibe to the German summer.
1. The perfect Cali flair piece
“Cool, retro relaxed and yet eye-catching: For me, this knitting set embodies the classic LA style perfectly. Just a look made for cruising down Mulholland Drive in a vintage car.”
2. The dress for dressing up and down
“I especially love this dress from the collection as it can be styled on one side so it’s ideal for a summer wedding, but on the other can be dressed down perfectly for a pool party. Personally, I would style it with the blue sunglasses or the shell bag from my Mango collection.”
Pssst: By the way, Chelsea Hansford herself wore exactly this dress for the launch party of her Mango cooperation in Menorca:
3. The top 3 trend accessories for summer
“I’m sure: The rubber sandals with the thick sole will be THE new It shoe of the summer.”
“My favorite pieces from the collection are the sunglasses. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge sunglass fan and own what feels like a billion. Now designing my own with Mango has been super exciting for me. All shades have turned out superbold – and thus real key pieces that take an entire outfit to a new level.”
“I’ve had this oversized basket bag since I got the sample from the collection, it’s just a brilliant shape that makes a statement right away and I’m sure it will be a joy to have every day during the summer.”
