Banana Republic x Mad Men

Half the charm of the TV show Mad Men for me is how good it looks. The interiors and the clothes are just dreamy and reminiscent of an era when both men and women looked polished and properly put together.

For this limited collection, Banana Republic has actually collaborated with Mad Men's costume designer Janie Bryant to create updated, wearable versions of the typical Betty Draper and Joan Holloway looks. The collection includes my favourite pussy bow blouses, cardigans, dresses, pumps, pearls, silk scarves and leopard print bags, clutches and belts.

The men's collection includes the Don Draper suits, trench coats and sweaters. Typical accessories of the time such as fedoras, money and tie pins help achieve the complete look.

Who can resist a man dressed like Don Draper?
