J.C. Penney is getting ready to introduce a another big label next week. They already have Aldo, Kimora Lee Simmons, The Olsesn Twins, Charlotte Ronson and Sephora. This will be just another name to add onto their list…
Next Wednesday, Penney will be adding 77 MNG by Mango shops inside its department stores and online and aiming for 600 stores by February. You can also expect the rotation to be faster, looking for a new collection every two weeks.
The collection for this season is men’s wear-inspired and includes twill military jackets feminized by being cropped and fitted; tuxedo jackets softened with peplum in the back, tulip sleeves and lace piping, and tailored suits styled with high-neck blouses with bows. “It’s like boy-meets-girl. It’s effortless,” said Lorraine Hitch, Penney’s general merchandise manager of footwear and handbags. “There are great layering pieces and it’s really versatile,” meaning there are items suitable for the office as well as nonwork settings. Sunglasses and fashion jewelry will be added in the spring.
Prices range from $9.90 to $19.90 for a T-shirt to $59.90 to $159.90 for jackets. MNG by Mango will be joining Aldo in the Call It Spring launch on Sept. 23.
