when i went to san francisco this summer i kept seeing signs for this store. i had never heard of MNG by MANGO...finally after much shopping i ran across this store in westfield centre on market street. the store was crowded and it seemed like a tornado had gone through it. they were having an amazing sale & people were eating it up. there seemed to be a wide assortment of merchandise for woman. after leaving san francisco i saw something either or television or in print about penelope cruz and her sister monica doing a limited edition line for MNG by MANGO. last night as i was flipping through the latest issue of people style watch i saw a top from this store. here's a little information i found about the latest store popping up over the United States. MNG by MANGO is a prestigious, multinational company dedicated to the design, manufacture, & marketing of clothing and accessories from women. MNG by MANGO hails from Barcelona. they have stores in los angeles, san francisco, chicago, & miami. new stores are opening in boston, dallas, d.c., seattle, vegas, and puerto rico. if you don't live close to any of these locations you can shop online if you've been to and shopped at zara or h&m...MNG by MANGO is very similar! here are a few pieces from MNG BY MANGO red coat $149 black coat $149, white top $59, black dress $89, brown wrap dress $89
