It may not come as a big surprise that I am a big fan of Banana Republic. A global apparel and accessories brand focused on delivering modern, covetable style for professional women and men, Banana Republic has been one of my go to stores for my professional wardrobe and some after hours evening wear that’s why I am beyond thrilled (so are many friends and blogger friends I know) of the new BANANA REPUBLIC AND L’WREN SCOTT LIMITED-EDITION HOLIDAY 2013 COLLECTION coming out this week! Why? L’Wren Scott embodies a philosophy of timeless style and modern classics that can be worn from day to night. Her signature sexy silhouettes and intricate construction have drawn a fan base of some of the most influential tastemakers in the world – from celebrities to models to rock stars of course. And that’s not entirely because of Mick Jagger.
BEAUTIFUL AND LUXURIOUS: L’WREN SCOTT DESIGNS FOR BANANA REPUBLIC
Banana Republic Creative Director and Executive Vice President of Design, Simon Kneen says: “L’Wren really understands what a woman loves and wants to wear. Her knack for bringing imaginative versatility and femininity to classic design is something that immediately brought us together as creatives.” This collection is perfectly timed for the holidays as it reflects an appreciation for genuine luxury, beautiful fabrics and unexpected details. Aside from the lust-worthy party dresses in rich fabric and colours, the designs created from this limited collection bring a modern approach to pieces you will keep wearing and loving forever.
How can you possibly choose a favourite amongst the more than 50-piece collection includes apparel and accessories for women, ranging from sequin party dresses and bejewelled cardigans, to feminine, tailored jeans, lace dresses and pencil skirts?
