Sleek and Staple: Black

Every woman who has ever set foot on Mango felt like a kid in a candy store. An hour would be spent going through racks of their clothes, checking out the latest batch of goodies and trying them on.

Ten years since its arrival, and it’s still one of the most coveted and well-loved retail brand in the country. To celebrate ten stylish years, the fashion house threw an exclusive cocktail party at the NBC tent at Fort Bonifacio Global City. Manila’s most stylish were present to join in on the festivities with host Joey Mead opening the ceremony: “Mango revolutionized and revitalized women’s fashion sense and has injected that much-needed edged chic.”

As for the guests, ladies gamely showed up in sleek black outfits, as requested by Mango. Who says black is boring? Take your cue from these ladies, and you might score some good finds at their big sale:

Designer Charina Sarte: “My inspiration is ‘80s glam. I wore a sequined mini dress that I made.”

Real Estate Mogul Divine Lee wore: “Mango! With a Balenciaga bag and Jil Sander shoes.
I started the look when I got the bolero with feathers! I love that Mango collection.”

Model Maggie Wilson (with Victor Consunji): “I'm wearing a Mango top and leather jacket,
with my own shorts, shoes from Aldo and a bag from River Island.”

Stylist Nina Estacio picked a Glitterati mesh dress and black motorcycle jacket with a Mango clutch,
while Aya Feliciano chose a top and belt from H&M, skirt from Mango, purse from Marc Jacobs
and Amiclub Wear shoes. “All black rock-ish for a change!”

Other guests include designer Tina Diniac. Her lace stockings add a playful vibe.

Reema Otswani look very polished and demure.

A reunion of sorts for the Summit ladies: Anne Bella, Preview's Agoo Bengzon, and Ana Kalaw.
Oh, and their names all start with A's—how cute! Anne and Ana showed of their legs in black shorts;
with Anne in pretty bows and Ana in trendy chunky platforms.
