Banana Republic’s Complete Mad Men Collection

This August, Banana Republic stores will start selling Mad Men the capsule collection, which was supposed to coincide with the long-awaited return of Mad Men the television show on AMC. Though the season premiere has been pushed back to next year, the 65-piece line for men and women is coming out anyway. Inspired by the sixties outfits the cast wears on the show, it ought to be great for the chain, which has gotten a little stale over the years, lacking name-y designer capsule collections to hype and liven up the merchandise like H&M, Uniqlo, Topshop, Target, and even its sister store the Gap.
Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant, who has done her own QVC line and is thinking of launching her own clothing line, worked with Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen on the collection.
