Encores Sundays 6AM/5c
Today, Banana Republic and AMC will debut the Mad Men Collection, a limited-edition yet affordable line for both men and women. Created by Banana Republic in collaboration with the show’s Emmy-winning Costume Designer Janie Bryant, this Capsule Collection offers a modern take on ’60s style and features nearly 65 pieces of apparel and accessories.
“Working with Janie to gain a true understanding of the Mad Men look and feel was a delight,” says Banana Republic Creative Director Simon Kneen. “Janie was instrumental in helping us achieve the series aesthetic and standard of authenticity with this capsule collection, offering sketches, her own inspirations and actual artifacts from the production set to help inspire the Mad Men within all of us.”
The men’s collection includes knit sweaters, tailored suit separates and fitted trousers, as well as such classic accessories as a money clip, cotton pocket squares, silk ties, tie bars and fedora hats. The women’s pieces include a chic trench coat, tailored dresses, high-waisted skirts, silk tie-neck blouses and statement accessories like print scarves and leopard print pump heels.
“Collaborating with Simon and his team to design this collection was an experience I’ll never forget,” says Bryant. “It’s so rewarding to help create a collection that will allow fans of the series to channel their own Mad Men style and take home fashionable items that are modern, not costume.”
