We stopped by Banana Republic's showroom yesterday to preview their holiday collection - and, well, holy Mad Men. If the costume designers for our favorite show get lost on the way to Kate Spade, it's because they're caught picking up some watered down Michael Kors at Banana. Their winter palette is purple, black, gold and a pinkish nude. The shapes are definitively vintage: bell cut skirts, boat neck shift tops and dresses, high waisted pencil skirts and cropped 3/4 sleeve jackets. There are a few Prada-esque lace shifts and skirts mixed into the heavy silks and tweed jackets, all paired with patent booties and chunky gold peep-toes. A selection of Inhabit-like sweater coats and boyfriend slacks hung on the casual end. Even their jewelry looked like it was sourced from antique jewels, especially when nestled next to the fur muffs, (marked "LUXURY"), and elbow length gloves. We loved almost every single piece. Just wish it came out before fashion week so we could prance around Bryant Park like it's 1962.
