Pernille Teisbaek's Mango Collection Is Here, and I Tried On the Best Bits

Fashion collaborations are having a bit of a moment, and it feels like every month another brand announces that it's joining forces with a high-profile industry name. As a fashion editor, it's easy to become cynical about these powerhouse pairings, but every now and then one comes along that hits the nail on the head. This month? It's Mango's collaboration with Scandi It girl Pernille Teisbaek

She's one of the original influencers, and I've genuinely loved her clean-lined yet statement-making style ever since I joined Instagram. It's this elevated approach to basics that winds its way through her Mango edit, manifesting in immaculate tailoring, versatile tank tops and flattering jeans. "I was thinking about the woman, the mother, the girl," Teisbaek explains. "It was important that we responded to the versatility and ease that busy, modern women need from their wardrobes. For me, that's about good materials and good, timeless fits."

I had a chance to try on some of the key pieces from the collection, which drops today. As an outwear lover, I was obsessed with the boxy white blazer, which pairs perfectly with the straight-leg jeans, and the beautiful navy tailored coat with its nipped-in waist and dramatic sleeves.

THE TAILORED COAT

I like how this tailored coat is nipped in at the waist, which is a departure from the oversized styles proliferating right now. The contrasting puffed sleeves also add plenty of drama.

THE MINISKIRT

The miniskirt is one of the key trends to come off the runway this season, and this simple black number has truly converted me. It's definitely on the shorter side (I'm roughly 5'7"), so it's perfect for petite individuals. 

THE BOXY BLAZER

I'm a sucker for a boxy blazer, and this cream number ticks all the boxes. It works beautifully with the collection's perfect straight-leg jeans and white tank top. 

THE BOMBER JACKET

This bomber jacket reminded me of some of the styles that appeared on Celine's A/W 21 runway, and I can imagine it looking very cool with a midi skirt and chunky boots.

THE MINIDRESS

Another mini, but this time in dress form. With thin straps and a thigh-grazing hemline, it packs plenty of '90s vibes. I like how it has been styled on the website with the matching flared trousers.
