Rebecca Brayton: Banana Republic is taking their safari style to the office. Hi, I’m Rebecca Brayton and welcome to watchmojo.com and I spoke to PR representative for Banana Republic, Jennifer Gauthier about their Spring and Summer Collection.
So firstly, can you tell me a bit about what Banana Republic is known for?
Jennifer Gauthier: Absolutely, Banana Republic is really all about modern, urban, affordable luxury and I think you can really, really see that in the collection. Banana Republic was founded on a safari concept and it really came back to its roots this season for spring-summer. This is a giraffe print piece which obviously has its foundation in safari but the collection is really, really grown and has really developed a very modern aesthetic. It has really taken those staple pieces you would find in a safari collection and built upon them in a really modern way.
Rebecca Brayton: Tell me a little bit about the trends that we’re going to see for the spring and the summer colors and fabrics and stuff like that.
Jennifer Gauthier: We did tons of dresses in bright colors, in neutrals. The bright colors that we focused on were beautiful magenta tones, really, really gorgeous jewel tones, bright canary yellow, we did green, we did a really beautiful bright orange and then a gorgeous sort of cobalt blue but then it was all grounded with hits of white and then sort of neutral khaki tones as well.
Rebecca Brayton: So can you tell me a bit about this outfit?
Jennifer Gauthier: The walking short has become a real staple for spring-summer. And this is a really luxurious piece due to the color and large ferns. It’s just such a beautiful tone. She’s also got a handbag with the patent details. The patent still continues to be really strong in accessories. This is a really wearable look. You can wear this in the office and then out for drinks afterwards.
Rebecca Brayton: So this outfit has some sunglasses, tell me about them.
Jennifer Gauthier: We’re launching an optical line starting in stores in March. There are over 21 different styles, so they’re really, really beautiful sunglasses. I can’t pick which one I want for myself but there’s tortoise shell, there’s black, there are sorts of aviator styles as well and they’re all very oversized, 60’s influenced, you know, the full UVA and UVB specters, so they’re just gorgeous.
Rebecca Brayton: So tell me a bit more about the accessories in this outfit.
Jennifer Gauthier: Well yes. So the accessories really highlight the dress. The dress is gorgeous with the buttons and the really bright color and then all you really have to do is add on another poppy color with the head scarf and then you had a white handbag and it just sort of grounds everything. Luggage style bags are really, really popular right now, so very structured, lots of pockets, put your cell phone and your iPod and everything that you have with you so it’s a great piece.
