Mad Men Capsule At Banana Republic

Banana Republic and AMC have announced an encore installment to the acclaimed Banana Republic ‘Mad Men’ capsule, which launches exclusively at Banana Republic North America retail locations and online at beginning March 1, building up to the season five premiere of Mad Men on AMC March 25.

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 offers a fresh twist on the 1960s era polish and panache, taking inspiration from country club scenes featured in the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning Mad Men series.

The collection consists of more than 40 pieces of apparel and jewelry for men and women, and is designed by Banana Republic in collaboration with Emmy Awardwinning Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant.

The menswear collection features dapper dressing separates, including bright polos, bold checked woven shirts, argyle vests and a sporty spring-weight navy blazer. The women’s collection offers ladylike pieces in brights and bolds, such as sophisticated dresses in graphic florals and solids, cardigans and feminine lace shell blouses and chic coral cropped capris.
