Mad Men's 6th season premieres April 7 so it's time for another Banana Republic collection inspired by the series. The collaboration, headed by the Emmy winning costume designer Janie Bryant, takes its cues from the evolving series by leaving the classic Kennedy years and entering the the mod era. Inspired by the latest Mrs. Draper who shook up the show and Don's life with her notions of autonomy and short shift dresses, the line reflects the many shifts awaiting the ad men at Sterling Cooper Draper Price as they approach the '70s.
The series, as well as the collection, is exchanging the prim and proper full skirts, neutral colors, and cardigans for keyhole cutouts and the sort of loud, geometric prints Don would probably turn his nose up at. In the newly released ad campaign for the line, famous model Coco Rocha embodies the fashion-forward Megan Draper, making us hanker for the series even more. Luckily you can get the clothes before the entertainment as the line hits stores and online February 27.
What do you think? Do you like the groovy turn Banana is taking the line? Or are you like Roger or Don, yearning for simpler time?
