The young couple appears in the new winter catalogue and poses with the designs of Spain s most international brand.
Born in New York on 28 February 1986, Olivia Palermo grew up in New York City, Connecticut and Paris. Her elegant and effortless personal style and her ability to perfectly combine the must-haves of the moment have garnered her worldwide recognition as a fashion trendsetter. She lives in Brooklyn with her boyfriend, German-born model Johannes Huebl, who has appeared in top fashion magazines such as Vogue, ELLE, Harper s Bazaar, and GQ.
The famous party photographer Patrick McMullan was the first to discover Olivia s charm, style and beauty and started taking her photos at social events about town. Since then she has starred in a popular reality TV series about the fashion industry and has appeared in numerous international magazines such as Vogue, Harper s Bazaar, ELLE, and InStyle, among many others. In her spare time, she supports charitable organizations, in particular Operation Smile and New Yorkers for Children.
During the photo shoot for the new catalogue, in which day and night looks are combined, Olivia and Johannes revealed their chemistry by posing in a totally natural way in front of the photographer Txema Yeste at Barcelona s Hotel Palace. The model declared: I love working with Johannes, and the photographers love seeing the chemistry that exists between us. Also, working with MANGO is like a dream, because it is a wonderful company. The styling was done by the MANGO team, while the make-up and hair styling was the responsibility of Jordi Fontanals and Christoph Hasenbein respectively.
This season, the Spanish firm continues to reinterpret traditional country garments, such as the cape, garments with leather and suede applications, or thick knits with a handmade appearance. All of them feature a range of camel tones and winter reds, combined with touches of grey and blue. For evening wear, the brand has gone for a theatrical and romantic air by applying elements such as feathers, sequins or stones. The colour palette comprises tones associated with vintage, such as make-up and beige, mixed with chocolate and caramel, while gold and copper add a touch of light.
MANGO, which opened its first store in Barcelona s Passeig de Gr cia in 1984, now has over 1,600 stores in 100 countries. It is Spain s second biggest fashion export company and its concept is based on an alliance between a quality product, in accordance with the latest fashion trends, and an affordable price. The brand image is reinforced by its stores, which benefit from a dynamic image in accordance with the personality of its customers, and represent the calling card for the brand.
