These nostalgic and rather snazzy photos dropped into our inbox yesterday and we just couldn’t have you miss out on the latest news of Banana Republic’s limited edition Mad Med collection for spring 2012.
Here’s a few words about the collection from the press release:
“Banana Republic, the brand focused on workplace style, and AMC are proud to announce an encore installment to the acclaimed Banana Republic ‘Mad Men’ capsule, which launches exclusively at Banana Republic North America retail locations and online at www.bananarepublic.com beginning March 1, 2012, building up to the season five premiere of “Mad Men” on AMC on Sunday, March 25 at 9:00 p.m. EST/CST.
In response to consumer demand following the strong debut of the Banana Republic ‘Mad Men’ collection in August 2011, the Banana Republic ‘Mad Men’ spring capsule returns, offering fans a fresh twist on the 1960’s era polish and panache, taking inspiration from country club scenes featured in the Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning “Mad Men” series.
Designed by Banana Republic in collaboration with Emmy® Award-winning “Mad Men” Costume Designer Janie Bryant, the collection features more than 40 pieces of apparel and jewelry for men and women and embodies the style tenets of the time, including polished sportswear and chic essentials. Set through the Banana Republic lens of must-have versatile work wear with style, the Banana Republic ‘Mad Men’ collection offers a fresh twist of stylish modernity to the “Mad Men” aesthetic.”
The collection will launch in Toronto on March 1st, but you can preview the collection a day early at their Yorkdale location at 6:30 p.m. Check out the full lookbook below and visit BR on Facebook for more information on the preview.
