Banana Republic Goes Mod For Mad Men Collection #3

Third time's a charm!

Banana Republic is once again teaming up with AMC for a third Mad Men collection.

The new 50 piece collection was inspired by Jessica Paré's character, Megan Draper, and reflects the mod style of the 60s and Beatlemania.

Mad Men costume designer, Janie Bryant explained her new approach, saying:

"Megan represents the young and modern. She really represents a changing of the times."

Banana Republic executive vice president and creative director, Simon Kneen added that Megan "takes risks and is a little bit more in the know in terms of fashion" than Don's first wife Betty.

The collection ranges in price from $49.50 to $140 for women's clothing and $44.50 to $375 for men's, and will be available March 1st.

Your First Look: Banana Republic's Anna Karenina-Inspired Collection

Just last month, Banana Republic announced they would be launching a capsule collection inspired by the upcoming film Anna Karenina, and now it's here! Well, almost.

The capsule holiday line collab between the film's costume designer, Jacqueline Durran, and the label's creative director, Simon Kneen, is elegantly romantic and we can't wait to get our hands on the beautiful fashionables.

Just in case you missed our previous broadcast of the line, here are the deets:

The women's attire is very 19th century with Russian accents similar to Karenina's with a modern Banana Republic fusion appeal including lace, bedazzled clutches, costume jewelry, faux fur accessories and feather hair pieces.

For the gentleman, the retailer followed the same 19th century structure creating double and single breasted topcoats in houndstooth patterns, coats, parkas, and fitted suits with faux fur collar highlights.

How fashionably enchanting!

Too bad the get-ups won't be available until October, which is right in time for the movie's big November premiere, but for now we have lots of pics.

Take a look at the collection (below)!
