Since it’s founding in 1978, Banana Republic has become a wardrobe mainstay for classic attire with effortless style. Moving beyond the safari theme of its early foundation, Banana Republic has demonstrated its enduring appeal, often referencing earlier style eras. Recently they featured popular Anna Karenina and Mad Men capsule collections that were inspired by timeless fashions of the 19th and 20th Centuries.
Banana Republic has been the go-to brand for celebrities from Taylor Swift to Gwen Stafani and Jessica Alba, who are looking for a pulled together look on their casual days off. For all-American style shoots, magazines have selected pieces from the Banana Republic collection their cover girls, including Lauren Conrad and Heidi Klum.
The Banana Republic eyewear collection offers the same superior design as their clothing line, with glasses made from materials imported from Italy and covetable styles that range from subtle cat eye to classic rectangular and round shapes.
