Tapped to design a limited edition collection for affordable Spanish retailer Mango last November, Moieses de la Renta decided to focus on embellished tee shirts.
Newly released images of the tees show heavy, overworked necklines—trimmed in ribbons, swatches of fabric, tulle, and bows—and trompe l'oeil tassel and rope prints. According to a press release, de la Renta's inspiration for the collection came from "traditional romantic themes" like summer flowers and shiny gems.
We would venture to say the six styles shown here could have used a little editing, especially in the applique department. That said, if Holly Hobbie craftwork is your look, the collection hits Mango stores on March 1, and each tee shirt will retail for under $50.
