The Banana Republic Mad Men collection is back with a third installment of sixties chic apparel. This time around, the high street retailer takes style cues from Canadian character Megan Draper.
Portrayed by real-life Montreal native Jessica Paré, Draper’s bold sartorial choices are channeled through the adaptable Banana Republic lens, translating her signature shift dresses, checkered capris, keyhole cutouts and geometric prints into ultra wearable pieces.
While all wardrobes on AMC’s hit period drama are of coveted interest, its Megan’s youthful psychedelic prints and brave hues that move the third capsule away from the traditionally classic Kennedy years and into a new era of style inspiration — the mod vibe of the late 1960s.
In collaboration with Emmy award winning costume designer Janie Bryant, who initiated the design process by looking to her favourite costumes, the capsule is gone with the Betty Draper full skirts of collections yore and in with the spirit and fashion-forward thinking of the series newest heroine, modeled by Coco Rocha in the just-released campaign photos.
As always, Don Draper makes his mark on retro-inspired menswear, lending his uniform look of sophisticated sport coats, understated windowpane grids, notched lapels and skinny ties to the collection.
The Banana Republic Mad Men Spring 2013 collection will arrive in stores and online Feb. 27. Season 6 of Man Men is set to premier April 7 on AMC.
