It’s a mod mod world at Banana Republic
While we wait for “Mad Men” to get back on air, we can relive Megan Draper’s groovy dresses and shorter hemlines with Banana Republic’s new capsule collection based on season five of the AMC hit show. For spring, BR creative director Simon Keen and the show’s costume designer Janie Bryant channeled the mod styles of the ’60s into the 50-piece line — which is perfect timing considering so many designers, including Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, did the same on the runways. At much more reasonable prices — the collection ranges from $45 to $375 — ladies can find mini shift dresses in bold geometric prints, bright colors, keyhole details and checked capris. For guys, there are bold plaids, sport coats (they were just getting popular at the time), fedoras and skinny ties. The collection is in stores now.
