Banana Republic To Release 'Mad Men' Collection

While Mad Men won't be back till early 2012, if you're missing the fabulous style created by costume designer, Janie Bryant, fear not, you can still get a dose of it come August when her 65-piece collaboration with Banana Republic's creative director, Simon Kneen, emerges. I'm definitely digging the men's wear, I'm a sucker for a bow tie or sweater vest, but I'm not totally sold on the women's wear. I see the inspiration, but I definitely see more Banana Republic than "Mad Men." I think that's just me and my love of vintage though. I want more Peggy bows, Peter Pan collars, pretty pill box hats, or even a bright Joan dress. Why get 1960's inspired, when you can get 1960's? As a collection made for the contemporary public though, I think it's pretty adorable. I would've liked a bit more color, but I am totally obsessed with the leopard bag in the last set of pictures and and the leopard raincoat in the picture below. Love! What do you guys think? Are you 'mad' about this "Mad Men" collection? (my blog entry for BUST.com)
