Here's something to cheer you up if the snow outside has broken your spirit (even though you will WISH for snow when it's 40+ degrees, and we all know it): Banana Republic and Roland Mouret are teaming up for a capsule collection which will be released in August.
*Runs outside and makes snow angels in celebration*
Using the famous Banana Republic Sloan fabric (the stretch fabric synonymous with the brand), the Roland Mouret for Banana Republic Collection has been described as a "unique blend of rich, bi-stretch fabric, which creates a "magic" fit that shapes through figure-flattering silhouettes." The collection will consist of 30 pieces, will include everything from blazers to pencil skirts to sheath dresses, and will be available in colourblocking, leopard prints, bright tones, and svelte cuts. In the words of Drake: HYFR. And in the words of Roland Mouret:
"Partnering with Banana Republic on this project was such an adventure for me," he said. "The common goal for this collection is to offer incredible fit through an assortment of hourglass silhouettes using Banana Republic's Sloan fabric, extending my love of structure into accessible prices. These prices are multi-functional for the modern woman to wear and accessorize in her own way, making her always ready for life's journey."
And multi-functional these prices are: they range from $62 (belt) to $205 (dress).
"I'm so inspired by Roland's skill for draping and attention to fit," added Banana Republic Vice President of Women's Design, Melloney Birkett. "He has such a strong sense of how to dress a woman, and brings a beautiful sensuality to his work. Roland's vision really matched ours as we worked together to use his design expertise to build Banana Republic's Sloan fabric to create a truly covetable collection."
The countdown to August begins now.
