Aside from a few nice coats and some passable separates, we were unimpressed with the Spring 09 Mango collection. Just look at the Banana Republic Spring 09 collection or the Topshop Look Book from this fall and you'll see why. The only thing you really have to sacrifice when you shop mass-market is a little bit of quality (you get what you pay for) and the knock-off problem. Otherwise, the stores are, in our opinion, fine places for trendy wardrobe-filler. The problem with Mango is that you get the feeling that even if Mango weren't a mass-market corner cutter they'd still lack sophistication...whereas Topshop and Uniqlo and Target are all stores that don't, actually, give you that feeling.
