Now here’s yet another Banana Republic collection that is speaking to me. (Gah so much pretty lace!) The Banana Republic Anna Karenina inspired collection hit stores on October 31st.
This special holiday capsule was styled and curated by Jacqueline Durran – the twice-Academy Award nominated costumer designer for the movie Anna Karenina starring the gorgeous Keira Knightly. I really need to go see this movie!
Inspired by the 19th Century fashions, the collection was reinterpreted to suit our needs today. Lace, fur and sparkle are the key elements of this collection. Here are some of my favorite looks! (Note that I tried to find links where possible – for items without links I was told that these pieces were available in certain stores only).
Black Knit Sequin Dress ($185)
Silver Stretch Beaded Bracelet ($55)
Black Faux Fur Tote
Silver Crystal Facetted Necklace ($55)
Black Gemstone Clutch ($185)
Charcoal Crystal Hinged Bracelet ($50)
Black Satin Box Clutch ($150)
Black Velvet Beaded Box Clutch ($150)
Black Leather Ankle Strap pump ($128)
Crimson Cowl-back dress ($175)
Smokey Topaz Layered Bead Necklace ($55)
Silver Crystal Layered Bead Necklace ($55)
Red Woven Satin Box-Frame Clutch ($150)
Black Suede Mary Jane Pump ($128)
I think the collection is really beautiful and elegant, I just wish more of the items were available online! I tend to do most of my shopping online these days as it’s hard for me to make it out to the malls.
Has anything from this collection caught your eye? Have you tried anything on?
