FASHION NEWS: Banana Republic’s Mad Men Collection
We’re pretty sure that anyone who has ever watched AMC’s Mad Men has daydreamed about stepping into into Don Draper’s world. Now Banana Republic and AMC are offering fans a chance to really embrace the polish and panache of the 1960s with a new limited edition Mad Men-inspired collection for men and women.
The collection features nearly 65 pieces of apparel and accessories for men and women, embodying the style tenants of the time – effortlessly chic, dressed-up American sportswear. The men’s collection includes chunky-meets-streamlined knit sweaters, tailored suit separates and fitted trousers, as well as classic accessories with character, including a money clip, cotton pocket squares, silk ties, tie bars and fedora hats. The women’s pieces are modern yet lady-like including chic trench coats, tailored dresses, high-waisted skirts, silk tie-neck blouses and statement accessories, like print scarves and leopard print pump heels.
The collection is designed by Banana Republic in collaboration with “Mad Men” Emmy® Award-winning Costume Designer Janie Bryant and will be carried in Banana Republic’s North American stores and online at www.bananarepublic.ca beginning August 11, 2011.
