- Mango Man is joining forces with the iconic Italian firm Boglioli, in order to reformulate its concept of tailoring by placing the focus on quality and design.
- The first edition of the collaboration includes eight tailored blazers produced with materials that achieve excellent adaptability to the silhouette, making them the ideal option for every type of occasion.
Mango, one of Europe’s leading fashion groups, presents its collaboration with the emblematic Italian firm Boglioli. Founded in the early 20th century, the Milanese tailor’s Boglioli has made its heritage its core value. When combined with the modern character of our Barcelona roots, the result is this unique tailoring collaboration, in which quality and design is visible in every stitch.
Both firms have worked together on a carefully crafted collection that takes tailoring to its most versatile expression through comfortable and lightweight proposals. The spirit of the iconic Boglioli blazer has been reinterpreted to create eight pieces whose names refer to Italian cities: Cremona, Lodi, Milano, Mantova, Brescia, Como, Monza and Lecco.
Each one of the eight blazers that make up the collection has the capacity to reinvent itself according to the outfit and the time of day. The proposals, featuring different intensities of brown, green and grey tones, also include prints such as pinstripe and tweed.
The priority has been to work with Italian fabrics and European workshops. As for the materials, flannel and wool-knit form part of the majority of the proposals in the collection.
The collaboration has been publicised in a campaign that highlights the values shared between Milan and Barcelona: the passion for art, architecture and design.
The eight blazers that make up Mango designed by Boglioli will be available from 25 October on the website and in selected stores in Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The event was attended by some of the most-famous faces of the Mango community: Tamu McPherson, Veronika Heilbrunner, Sophia Roe and Marc Forné. Celebrities including Erika Boldrin and Giotto Calendol were also present at the event, whose theme was design, architecture, gastronomy and fashion.
