We’re hardly waiting for ‘Anna Karenina’, starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law, to hit theaters on November 16. Oh, but besides this, we’re pleased to announce you that Banana Republic designed a stunning capsule collection inspired by the movie’s 19th century style. “It’s really about taking key elements of that time period — sophisticated color, fabrics, and beautiful detailing — and translating that into an updated wardrobe,” Simon Kneen, Banana Republic’s Creative Director and Executive Vice President of Design told InStyle.com.
“Small touches such as lace and fur embellishments portray a classic sense of luxury without requiring a full look that may feel ‘costumey.’ Even if incorporating vintage pieces, you shouldn’t don a full 19th-century look. Instead, mix and match with more modern pieces to keep it current.”
Banana Republic’s Anna Karenina collection was styled and curated by the film’s costume designer Jacqueline Durran and it features 56 pieces including clothes priced between $59 to $500, but also shoes and accessories priced between $29 to $225. The line contains some exquisite goodies such as dresses, skirts, vests, coats, capes, dainty lace, velvet, faux fur, and some chic cold-weather appropriate accessories such as sophisticated hats and gloves. So, take a sneak peek at Banana Republic’s Anna Karenina lookbook and pick your favs. The capsule collection hits Banana Republic stores and bananarepublic.com on Tuesday, October 30.
