Banana Republic and Milly Announce Limited-Edition Collection for Summer 2013
Banana Republic and Milly founder and designer Michelle Smith are proud to announce the Banana Republic Milly Collection – a limited-edition capsule inspired by the summer sophistication of the Hamptons. The women’s collection is a natural extension for Milly, with the men’s styles representing Smith’s first foray into designing menswear – a unique innovation for the design partnership. The capsule launches exclusively at select Banana Republic retail locations worldwide and online in late May 2013.
The more than 60-piece collection of women’s and men’s apparel and accessories features original designs that incorporate a new print created exclusively for the capsule as well as six beloved Milly prints that have been updated specifically for these collaborative designs. Covetable women’s pieces range from maxi dresses, mini-skirts, and shorts in a rainbow of on-trend colors, including lime, coral, and navy, to versatile poolside totes and summer scarves. The menswear collection features a lineup of striped and patterned separates, including bright polos, woven tees and shorts. Apparel pieces range in price from $45 – $175 (women) and $24.50 – $64.50 (men); jewelry and accessory pieces range from $39.50 (jewelry) – $130 (tote).
