Great news for those of you that love retro glamour: Banana Republic is launching its new collection, inspired by the hit show Mad Men. The line will hit stores on August 11th, but Banana Republic’s Facebook fans will be able to order the collection online from August 10th.

The series’ award-winning costume designer, Janie Bryant, created a 65-piece capsule collection for the retailer. It features fitted shift dresses perfect for Joan Holloway-like curves and full skirts that are just made for would-be Bettys. Those high, nipped-in waists are designed to flatter any women’s slimmest part of her body. And for aspiring Don Drapers, there is a full menswear offering, featuring everything from cardigans to eveningwear.

In terms of accessories, clusters of pearls, leather gloves and classic courts complete the womenswear, while the men’s accessories feature trilby hats and skinny striped ties complete with clips.

Ms Bryant said she spent a year making this collection; “A lot of the pieces I brought to Simon (Kneen, Banana Republic’s creative director) and the design team were pieces from the show, some I designed, some vintage,” She revealed.

“A dress my grandmother made is an inspiration for a beautiful, beautiful dress.”

We can’t wait to get our Betty Draper on!
