Banana Republic Going Bananas Over New Launch Of Anna Karenina Style
It's a very sophisticated, chic line, that is blending 19th Century style with a modern edge. Feeling a little Leo Tolstoy?
If you adore the mystery of a cape, the ultra-glamour of big fur hats and collars ( don't worry all FAUX fur), and rich-looking black fabrics, then this collection will appeal to you.
The Banana Republic line will start at $29.50 for a piece of jewelry, to $325 for a coat, and higher.
And of course, Banana Republic is inspired as well, with the Anna Karenina movie coming out on November 9th, starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law.
Banana Republic's creative director Simon Kneen, told this to InStyle.com.
"It's really about taking key elements of that time period- sophisticated color, fabrics, and beautiful detailing- and translating that into an updated wardrobe."
Maybe you would like to add just a small piece of 19th Century Russia luxury to your wardobe, like a pair of earrings or cape. You don't want to deck yourself out in total Anna Karenina. It would look too costume-y.
We really like this look. How about you?
