Penelope Cruz launched her and her sister Monica’s collection for Mango yesterday in Ibiza, showing off more than one pretty black piece on the red carpet. While black dresses isn’t particularly groundbreaking, the little black dress Penelope is wearing with the beaded detail at the front and the Givenchy/Audrey Hepburn-esque scoop back detail, gives me some hope that the collection may have promise.
According to London’s Sunday Times, the collection will feature a mix of red-carpet-inspired evening wear, jeans, knits and daywear based on vintage pieces from their own wardrobes. “This is something we’e wanted to do for a long time,” Cruz says tells the Times. “We just had to find the right people to do it with. We’ve always loved clothes – we used to hide in the bathroom with fashion magazines and say, ‘I want that one.'”
The Penelope and Monica Cruz collection will hit Mango stores from September 16, 2007. This will also include Australian MNG (not Mango due to liscening issue) stores, so my fellow Aussie… mark that date down! Check out the sister’s modeling the collection for the Times below.
