Scarlett poses with new designs of MANGO winter


Once again, Scarlett Johansson, one of the most internationally-famous Fashion models, will feature in the new MANGO winter campaign. This is the third time the actress has launched the firm’s new designs since she became the face of the brand last year.

A typical London residence was the setting chosen by MANGO for the photo shoot, in which the actress once again posed before the camera of Mario Sorrenti. The prestigious photographer, who has collaborated with MANGO since Scarlett became the face of the brand, succeeding in immortalising the more elegant and romantic side of the actress. Jane How was responsible for the styling, while Lucía Pieroni and Oribe, respectively, were responsible for make-up and hair styling.

In this new collection, MANGO takes a fresh look at the timeless classics of British country style: trench coats, double-breasted jackets and tailored coats, without forgetting, in knitwear, the basics and thicker garments with a handmade look.

The carefree combination of these traditional garments is evocative of the late 70s. Tweed, corduroy and leather, together with sheer silks and touches of gold, create a contrast between the masculine and the feminine, giving new meaning to the classics.
