Last month, Banana Republic announced its first film-themed line, inspired by Keira Knightley's "Anna Karenina" remake (see the trailer here!), and now we have a sneak peek at the collection! Though the adaptation, true to Tolstoy’s novel, takes place in the late 1800s, Banana’s creative director Simon Kneen (inset) went with a '50s feel, thanks to costume designer Jacqueline Durran’s Dior New Look-inspired outfits for the film.
“You always take something that’s inspiring, and make it modern and relevant,” Kneen told InStyle.com. “We took the simplicity of the 1950s couture shapes — how architectural they were — and worked them back into the 1870s,” said Durran. This means shoppers can expect to see military coats with nipped-in waists, loads of costume jewelry, and Russian faux furs, ranging in price from $30 to $325.
Check out the images below of Banana Republic’s "Anna Karenina"-inspired holiday looks, set to hit stores this October, one month before the film’s release.
