Freja Joins The

# MANGO GIRLS

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

As the face of the Sep­tem­ber cam­paign, the ‘queen of cool’ gives us the low­down

Usu­ally mak­ing an ap­pear­ance on cat­walks for the likes of Prada and Louis Vuit­ton, Danish model Freja Beha Erich­sen, 29, has style we covet – and now can fi­nally get a piece of it. Fronting the need-right-now Mango col­lec­tion, she’s guar­an­teed to cre­ate in­stant au­tumn/ win­ter out­fit in­spo as we all try to look just like Freja. OK, not en­tirely, but we can hope, right? FB (as we know her) amaz­ingly man­ages to stay away from so­cial me­dia, so with nowhere to stalk her end­less #OOTD- wor­thy looks, the new cam­paign is a quick fix. Chitchat­ting with the lady her­self, we dis­cover her sar­to­rial se­crets…

Well done on the new cam­paign, Freja! We’re lov­ing the col­lec­tion – what piece were you des­per­ate to keep? The suit [above] feels re­ally re­laxed for tai­lor­ing. I like how it’s styled in the cam­paign, but I would also wear it as sep­a­rates with a clas­sic white T-shirt or jeans [for a day­time look]. How would you de­scribe your style? I’d say my style is a sim­ple, easy­go­ing uni­form that can be dressed up. It makes for light pack­ing. If you were an item of cloth­ing what would you be? I’d have to be a bra, be­cause they’re hard­work­ing but their hard work pays off. Who’s your ul­ti­mate icon? Women who em­brace all their char­ac­ter­is­tics and who rest in their abil­ity to do so are my true icons. Where do you get your in­spi­ra­tion? A beau­ti­ful poem, draw­ing, paint­ing, short story, novel, song, melody, na­ture, phrase, pho­to­graph... What era would you most like to live in? I’m quite con­tent liv­ing in our time with gen­der equal­ity, free­dom of speech and re­li­gion. We have quite some way to go, but I’d like to think we’re on the right path.

And the col­lec­tion it­self? Well, the pho­tos speak for them­selves. You won’t need to wait long to get your favourite bits ei­ther, as it all drops in stores on 8 Au­gust. Pen­cil it in, ladies...
