Banana Republic inspired by Anna Karenina for Holiday 2012!

You may have hear that their a movie version of Anna Karenia coming your way this fall and nothing goes better with a epic 19th century love story then a holiday capsule collection inspired by the luxurious fashions!

Banana Republic has one coming your way curated by twice-Academy Award-nominated Anna Karenina costume designer Jacqueline Durran. Designed by Banana Republic, it is inspired by the film and re-imagined through a modern fashion lens.

Encouraging a return to elegance evocative of the era of Anna Karenina, the capsule features modern pieces for men and women, including polished, feminine looks for her and tailored styles for him. Reflective of the film’s high-society period, the capsule presents a modern-day collection including alluring embellishments, luxe fabrics, and romantic styles.
The Banana Republic Anna Karenina collection includes statement accessories and apparel fashioned with velvet, faux fur, lace, and a touch of sparkle that embody the style of the era. Working alongside Kneen, Durran pulled a selection of her favourites from the collection, which would become the capsule. These looks were most reflective of the film’s aesthetic, whether representative of a specific character personality or a modern translation of one of the film’s elegant costume pieces.
Let me tell you, I haven't looked forward to a Banana Republic collection so much since Mad Men! All the fur touches are making me drool and I just love everything about the outfit above!

The Banana Republic Anna Karenina collection launches exclusively at Banana Republic North America retail locations and online in late October, building up to the much-anticipated movie debut this November.
