We saw it first with Target's Go International campaign, featuring looks from innovators like Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, and Libertine. More recently, Gap recruited CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners Thakoon, Rodarte, and Doo.Ri to put their respective spins on the classic, white, collar shirt for the Gap Design Editions campaign. Now, Milla Jovavich, model-turned-actress-turned-fashion designer, is doing her stylish thing with Mango, just in time for summer!
Milla and MNG is the new summer collection for Spanish retailer Mango, and the latest installment of a series of high-end designers creating looks for mass market retailers. Milla, one half of the eponymous line Jovavich-Hawk, designed twelve dresses for the chain, including a sweet, silk nightie-inspired number, a slinky modal minidress, and the ubiquitious maxi-dress. The designer's creative influence is most evident in the Peaches dress, which looks a lot like a Jovavich-Hawk dress seen on the Spring 2007 runway at New York Fashion Week. You can see the entire Milla and MNG collection here.
With its pale floral print and soft tiers, the Milla and MNG Peaches dress (left) is a less expensive version of the boho-chic Jovavich-Hawk dress.
