Banana Republic have been inspired by the movie Anna Karenina starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law and are releasing a limited edition capsule Anna Karenina collection that is oh so covetable, I so wish we were going into Winter right now. The very regal and ladylike collection will feature 56 pieces for women featuring lace, velvet and faux fur all in black and a hint of red priced between US$59-US$500! Inspired by the film’s 19th century fashion style and curated by its costume designer Jacqueline Durran, the collection will also feature shoes and accessories that will retail from US$29-US$225 (who doesn’t love the faux fur hats?).
“It’s really about taking key elements of that time period—sophisticated color, fabrics, and beautiful detailing—and translating that into an updated wardrobe,” Simon Kneen, Banana Republic’s Creative Director and Executive Vice President of Design.
“Small touches such as lace and fur embellishments portray a classic sense of luxury without requiring a full look that may feel ‘costumey.’ Even if incorporating vintage pieces, you shouldn’t don a full 19th-century look. Instead, mix and match with more modern pieces to keep it current.” (Instyle Mag)
The collection will hit Banana Republic stores from October 30th and online at BananaRepublic.com.
