FOR FINISH Violet, the plus size line of the Spanish brand Mango, arrives in Mexico as an additional option for clothes in extra size that goes from 30 to 42. Curvas Felices was invited to the inauguration and here they go all the details …
This is not the first time I’ve talked about Violeta on the blog . The first time I did it was on December 13, 2013 (ufff, it already rained!) In an entrance that was called “Mango bets on the girls with curves” (if they did not read it, they can do it by clicking on the title) . Here I would tell you about Violeta ‘s launch in Spain, via the web, and how a controversy had arisen as to whether it really was clothing in extra size or not.
Well, almost two years later, this brand that was born in Barcelona , FINALLY comes to Mexico with the very same collection that we can find in the Motherland.
Last night was the opening cocktail and they invited Happy Curves to be part of this !!Yupiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii: D
Violeta by Mango: 5 things you should know about the new store in Mexico
1. How many Violeta stores are there in Mexico?
Ojo, the brand already has some months that arrived in the country, however yesterday was the official opening , as it cut the ribbon of which is its largest store . This one is in the Shopping Center Santa Fe , first floor, to one side of the Palace of Iron.However, we can also find other stores in: Parque Central Toreo (DF), Patio University (DF), Angeopolis (Puebla), Galerias Serdán (Puebla) and soon in some Palacio de Hierro, as well as Boutique Palace in all).
Now that if none of these points is close, you can order online: shop.mango.com/MX/violet
2. What sizes do you handle?
Although the nomenclature of sizes is different in Mexico and Spain, speaking of Mexican sizes, we can find from 30 to 42 at Plus-size-tips; That is, in US sizes this would be from 8 to 22 approximately.
3. What style do you handle?
During the event I had the great luck to interview Violeta Andik , creator of this brand that bears his name. She told me via Periscope that ” The Violet woman is a woman with a young spirit; Is feminine, beautiful; Likes to show off her curves and is proud of them. ” This concept derives in sophisticated but youthful garments; Which are still feminine and sexy, but without being provocative.
* I, in fan, taking selfie with the creator of this brand, what an honor!<3
In short, I would define it as an elegant, young and feminine style.There are more formal clothes, which seemed ideal for going to work in the office, but others are more relaxed, perfect for staying at home or on weekends.
I was taking some photos of what we can find in the stores right now so they can judge for themselves:
They vary, but we can talk about that – depending on the garment – can go from 500 Mexican pesos up.Some coats can exceed one thousand pesos, but what can be safe is that they will last a lifetime.
5. How is Violeta born?
* Currently Candice Huffine and Vicky Martín Berrocal are the image of Violeta worldwide .
As I mentioned before, we had a Periscope with Violeta Andik , creator of this brand plus size Spanish to which we asked how it was born the idea of making it;This told us:
“It was born in 2013 when Mango begins to develop other lines like Mango Sport, Mango Intimates, Mango Kids and Mango Men. There was born the idea of doing Violeta and I was the one who was delegated the project. As a result, a market study was carried out and the DNA of the brand began to be developed throughout 2013. In 2014, the first stores were opened in Spain, and now in 2015, we arrive in Mexico . ”
One of the things he told me was that at the opening of his first store in Barcelona , he was very surprised to see clients who cried, telling him that they had never been able to buy a leather jacket because there was not one of his size … until now.
A new option for Mexican women
Personally, I say as a blogger and as a curvy girl , it gives me great pleasure that the spectrum of clothing options in extra sizes is expanding, as the idea that dressing in plus size is gradually becoming synonymous with dressing In a clean and ugly way.
