I love designer collaborations. I’m a total sucker for them. I practically went broke buying up Eugenia Kim’s hat line for Target, scooping up H&M’s Garden Collection, and most recently, clearing out the Target near my mom’s house of most of their Zac Posen collection.
It’s a guilty pleasure, I admit.
So I was surprised to see that Spain-based brand Mango launched a new collaboration this month, and it’s with Korean designer Lee Jean Youn.
Lee is a Korea-born, award-winning fashion designer. A graduate of the prestigious Hongik University with a degree in fashion design, Lee has received numerous awards and accolades during his 12-year career. He’s shown his collections around the world, including at China Qingdao Fashion Week, Hong Kong Fashion Week, and most recently the Paris haute couture shows.
