Spotlight: Banana Republic Mad Men Collection 2013

As if the new spring/summer collection from Banana Republic wasn’t exciting enough, this season Banana Republic brings its third iteration of the much-loved Mad Men capsule collection. And this one is extra special since it features one my favorite models, Coco Rocha.  I absolutely loved the editorial look with Coco Rocha channeling her inner Twiggy.


I often lament that it would have been great to be born in a different era and the 60s Mad Men era would have been a great time to live in. Considering the variety of silhouettes on the show (think January Jones’ Betty Draper and Christina Hendricks’ Joan Holloway), the collection suitably has designs and cuts for women of all shapes.

Style: "Mad Men"
Wouldn’t you love wearing something like this everyday?

The collection’s standout pieces for women are the printed shift dresses (which would work well for the Dubai World Cup) and the cropped striped pants. As much as I love the clothes in this collection, it’s the accessories that stole my heart and are going to wreck havoc on my credit card! The jewelry consists of gold-green and gold-blue chunky necklaces and bracelets, as well as geometric printed scarves.


And I absolutely fell in love with the two-tone clutch the lovely Mona at Al Tayer PR sent over! This is definitely going to be my new staple clutch.

And if you’re looking for a more contemporary look, Banana Republic has updated their stores with the Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which features some lovely pieces in white and on-trend nautical stripes. Considering temperatures are ramping up, these would make excellent pieces to add to your wardrobe for the Dubai summer season.

How many of you can remember the first store you shopped at? Or what was …


  1. Banana and the Gap in general have been on a roll since they got a new creative director. To balance out the universe- college darlings Abercrombie are now in a freefall and only their overseas stores are helping prop it up a bit.

    As a side note, after reading your profile- if you ever decide to head back to school- you are 100% bonafide HSW MBA material and any one of them will give their right arm to have you in their class!. They LOVE women engineers, and people who do techie/lots of number crunching roles. Just a thought! 🙂
