The Banana Republic “Mad Men” collection is back for spring and will be launching in stores and online tomorrow – February 27th! The new collection is inspired by Megan played by Jessica Pare (Canadian born!) and will be available exclusively at Banana Republic locations across Canada and online at www.bananarepublic.ca.
Here are some of my favourite looks from the collection.
MAD MEN KNIT VERTICAL BLUE STRIPE DRESS
MAD MEN BLUE & CORAL SILK SCARF
MAD MEN NAVY CHAIN NECKLACES
MAD MEN BLACK LEATHER CLUTCH
BLACK & CORAL WIDE-RIM SUNGLASSES
BLACK/ECRU COLORBLOCK PUMP
This simple dress is perfect for the office with a blazer or cardigan thrown over and for a weekend event with some great jewellery! I can even see it being casual with a pull over sweater on top and boots!
MAD MEN NAVY SLEEVELESS TEXTURED SHELL
MAD MEN NAVY LARGE GINGHAM SKINNY PANT
MAD MEN GREEN & NAVY BEADED NECKLACE
MAD MEN NAVY DOME RING
BLACK WIDE-RIM SUNGLASSES
DOVE GREY COLORBLOCK PUMP
I love, love, love this retro look! I’ve never really been a fan of patterned pants (I may have a pin striped somewhere…) but this gingham pattern is so cute! This subtle pattern mixing goes great together! And who doesn’t love navy for spring?
MAD MEN BLUE & GREEN GEO SHIFT DRESS
MAD MEN GOLD FOCAL CHAIN NECKLACE
MAD MEN NUDE HIGH-HEEL BALLET FLAT
BLACK TORTOISE SUNGLASSES
IVORY & GOLD HOOP EARRINGS
NAVY LEATHER CROSSBODY BAG
How cute is this blue and green dress? This dress speaks volumes on it’s own so no need to over accessorize. This dress would be great with heels, flats or boots! I’m just not sure if I can personally pull off the pattern.
MAD MEN LIGHT BLUE SOLID BLAZER
MAD MEN BLUEBELL PIQUE POLO
MAD MEN DARK STONE TROUSER
COGNAC LEATHER BELT
BLUE GREY ALLOVER ARGYLE PIMA SOCKS
LIGHT BROWN SUEDE OXFORD
Of course Banana Republic wouldn’t leave out the men. Ok I’m going to admit that I’m probably one of those rare girls that HATES pink and purple on guys. I dunno…maybe it’s just on my guy, but I can’t stand it! This light blue though? Love it! This whole look is great. Again, I’m no stylist but the shorter pants on guys drives me crazy. My guy is a tall one at 6’4″/6’5″ though…so perhaps it’s just because I think he’d look silly!
MAD MEN NAVY PLAID SUIT JACKET
MAD MEN WHITE WOVEN
MAD MEN NAVY PLAID SUIT TROUSER
MAD MEN RED STRIPE TIE
WHITE POCKET SQUARE
CRIMSON MICRO-PATTERN HEART SOCKS
BOURBON HYDE OXFORD
I absolutely love navy on guys. Navy or grey is just perfect for suits. Black is way too harsh most of time. I really love this polished look right down to the pocket square. The only part I’m hesitant on is the skinny tie and the length of the pants (again) but I love this look so much I’m willing to look past those things! Though you can’t see them here, according to the lookbook, the model is sporting crimson micro-pattern heart socks!
The new BR spring collection looks amazing too! I’ll post about that another day. What are your favourite looks and what are you planning on picking up?
If you’re free Thursday February 28th certain Banana Republic event stores will be hosting a “Mad for Mob” cocktail party at 5pm! Find out which locations will be participating here.
