Source of pictures and review: Style.com, RTW FW 2011 from Banana Republic
Intimately held at the Bowery Hotel, Banana Republic's ready-to-wear collection for this FW2011 has all the touches we've seen from the likes of Celine and even Gucci.
Texture was a big theme in its collection. To help its spectators to see it more in 3D vs. 2D, the seating was up close and almost personal.
Other trends it captured were the paper thin cotton turtlenecks that are worn under tunic blouses. The classic plaid and herringbone patters pressed into charcoal shades. Their winter white brocade pencil skirt is paired with a heritage sweater.
As for the male, the double breasted suit jackets and leather pea coat completes and polishes the outfit. I told you the DB is back! If you haven't done it already, see my previous post: The Return of the DB Jacket.
