For his latest collection, T by Alexander Wang, the New York based designer has brought back one of Saturday Night Live‘s favourite characters: Mango, who stars in a short film sketch. The sassy, charismatic spirit of Mango gave a sexy edge to the SNL show between 1997 and 2002. Exotic and mad is one way to describe him. Fashion icon? Maybe not the one we were thinking of when you picture the character in his tight lamé shorts and sparkly Berets.

Seducing stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and J.Lo whilst on the show was were Chris Kattan’s character, Mango got a name for being cheeky. And with “You can’t have-a-da-Mango!” as his catch phrase it’s easy to see why he was a 90s catch. It’s an interesting partnership then for Alexander Wang who spoke on the bizarre partnership, saying:

“Sometimes when fashion becomes too stiff, it’s great to have someone such as Mango come through and inject a new burst of energy. Having fun and a sense of humor is so important to me that when I’m able to incorporate it into my work, I run with it.”

See the teaser video clip below. The full sketch can be seen live as of today on AlexanderWang.com.
