Mango will be debuting a new plus-size line, Violeta by Mango, in early 2014. There’s one problem, though. The ‘youthful fashion collection,’ which comes in sizes 12 to 24, will not be available in the U.S. The line will only launch in store at the Spanish retailer’s largest markets in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, Russia, and Spain, as well as online in the UK. However, there’s at least one silver lining: Robyn Lawley is fronting the campaign.. or should we say backing? Her derrière seems to the focal point of the black and white teaser image.
This latest job might just be Lawley’s biggest to date and a major stride toward more body diversity in the industry. The anti-thigh gap ambassador told the Daily Mail just last week, “I am the perfect shape for plus-size modelling. I don’t feel any pressure to lose weight as I’ve been this size for years now and I don’t want to change or diet,” she said, “I enjoy exercising and being able to eat foods I like.”
The Violeta launch will boast a whopping 400 garments, with new products added every month, aimed at “modern and demanding woman who wants to feel attractive, sexy and fashionable.” We imagine that the line will eventually land here in the States, but until then Lawley will test our patience looking flawless in that lacey body-con shift.
