Iconic lifestyle brand, Mambo has teamed up with Emma Mulholland in a designer collaboration for SS15/16. Mambo recently celebrated 30 years in the fashion industry, and is showcasing it’s latest collaboration with the designs of Emma Mulholland. The SS15/16 collection is described as ‘ fun and whimsical ‘ and incorporates Mambo’s lifestyle and performance wear.
The range features mix-and-match swimwear, t-shirts, leggings, shorts, jackets and sunglasses inspired by the Great Barrier Reef, incorporating vibrant angel fish, blue lobsters, tiger sharks and various types of coral. Mulholland also infuses her own creative interpretation of traditional Mambo designs including the “goddess”, drawing inspiration from mermaids and mythical Venus.
“I’m honoured to be working with Mambo, a brand that is and has always been one of my personal favorites, with radical design and authentic Australia roots,” said Mulholland. “The strong surf heritage largely influenced the design of this collection, particularly the ‘80s Memphis’style which inspired a sense of nostalgia strongly represented in the range.”
“We are very excited to launch this collaboration with top Australian designer Emma Mulholland, a brand worn by some of the world’s top musicians and entertainers. Her in-demand and edgy designs bring a unique and distinct perspective to the brand,” said Dan Castle, Managing Director of Saban Brands Lifestyle Group. “The Emma Mulholland x Mambo Goddess collection will play a pivotal role in taking Mambo into premium, new retail spaces both in Australia and beyond.”
Price points for the range remain highly affordable with $39.95 (for crop tops and tank tops) $79.95 (for pants) to $149.95 (for jackets). The range is launching this August in Myer stores nationally and on ASOS.com
