The Camille Charrière x Mango collection is online, here’s how to buy it!
When writer, influencer and host Camille Charrière had married in Paris last year, she had no idea how much of an impact her sheer lace wedding had dress by British designer Harris Reed would turn out to be. Making a case for the bare all over dress, she styled her gorgeous gown over a sweet pair of white panties, creating an outfit combo that we, along with many others, couldn’t help but notice. The infamous look was the catalyst for Charrière’s next collection with Spanish label Mango – and she’s been a #MangoGirl for quite some time. “I became a Mango girl at the very beginning of the blog. I think it was one of the first big brands I worked with, so it holds a very special place in my heart,” she said. declared. vogue. The two clearly stayed connected because after Charrière’s nuptials in December, Mango approached the newlywed to collaborate on a party capsule collection, inspired by her cool-girl style and, of course, her signature wedding looks. “We kept a really strong relationship, so when they reached out after my wedding and offered to design a party collection, I kind of jumped at the chance.”
The 60-piece Camille Charrière x Mango collection officially launches tomorrow, Thursday November 3, but is available in store now exclusively for vogue readers.
Early in the design process, Charrière made several trips to Mango’s headquarters in Barcelona and worked directly with their in-house design and production teams. “We started with a mood board and looked at hundreds of old photos for inspiration. I was very determined to create a timeless collection in the sense that I didn’t want anything too trendy,” she tells us. party collection is meant to transport you to the iconic nightlife of the late 90s and early 2000s through sequin mini dresses, bodycon strappy dresses, satin mini skirts, and more.
It also perfectly captures Charrière’s bicultural heritage, having grown up in Paris and then moved to London, where she currently lives. “In France, girls tend to dress really; they like to look understated and effortless. They don’t tend to switch between what they wear during the day and what they wear in the evening, and if they do, it will never be as exuberant as what you see here (in London)” , she elaborates. “In London, it’s the opposite. People are very fond of dressing up and we have many opportunities to dress up. I wanted to find common ground so that there was something in this collection for everyone: the girl who likes to dress up and the girl who likes to dress up. For Charrière, there is also no one person in mind that she imagines wearing the collection. “I hope as many girls and boys as possible find something they love and make it their own,” she says. “I love seeing what people are wearing on the street, especially when what they’re wearing is very different from what I’m wearing, so my dream is to see people style the collection in a way that I don’t. I wouldn’t have thought. I think that’s what brings a capsule collection to life.
As for his favorite pieces? “I love all coats— I’ve always had a soft spot for good suits and outerwear. I think a coat really seals a figure together – it adds that va-va-voom. You really notice someone coming in with a nice coat,” she says.
“I also like the boots– they are easy and go with everything. You can wear them under pants or style them with Dresses, which I think is super versatile and fun. And the piece de resistance? The nude dresses, of course, which sit alongside pairs of equally festive sequins lingerie. Charrière understands that not everyone is ready to wear a nude dress without enough coverage underneath. “We’ve seen a lot of naked clothing across the board, and there’s always the question of when you wear that kind of dress, what are you going to wear underneath? I wanted to provide an option for girls who didn’t feel not comfortable wearing something so skimpy. The underwear also looks like a party piece,” she says vogue. She imagines wearing the pieces under the collection’s outerwear to add just a touch of sex appeal and sparkle.
