Banana Republic’s “Mad Men” Collection
It may be a while before the people of Sterling Cooper Draper Price grace our TVs again, but in the meantime, how freaking fabulous is THIS?
“Banana Republic and AMC are proud to announce the first-ever limited edition “Mad Men” inspired collection for men and women. 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.com beginning August 11, 2011.
“Working with Janie to gain a true understanding of the ‘Mad Men’ look and feel was a delight,” says Banana Republic Creative Director Simon Kneen. “Janie was instrumental in helping us achieve the series aesthetic and standard of authenticity with this capsule collection, offering sketches, her own inspirations and actual artifacts from the production set to help inspire the ‘Mad Men’ within all of us.”
“Collaborating with Simon and his team to design this collection was an experience I’ll never forget,” says Bryant. “It’s so rewarding to help create a collection that will allow fans of the series to channel their own ‘Mad Men’ style and take home fashionable items that are modern, not costume.”
We admit, it was virtually impossible to scroll through the pics without declaring, “That’s a Joan; that’s a Peggy; that’s a Betty…” If you’ve long admired the old school femininity and sexiness of the ladies’ clothes on the show, well you better start saving your pennies, girls. And if you’re a guy who wants to grab a little of that Draper (or Sterling, or Campbell) style for yourself, here’s your chance.
