Remember that sapphire wrap dress Kate Middleton wore to her engagement announcement party back in 2010? Come August 8th, a recreation of that very dress will be available in Banana Republic stores across the country! Banana Republic has teamed up with Issa London for an autumn capsule collection, inspired in part by BR’s “safari heritage“.
The full Banana-Issa London collaboration collection will include 40 pieces: jewel-toned dresses, assorted animal prints, scarves, handbags, jewelry, and sweaters. Even better? A lower-than-usual price point! Items will range in price between $39.50 – $150 per piece…an extra amazing deal considering Kate’s iconic navy frock originally came in at over $500.
For more information on Banana Republic Meets Issa London, including an exclusive interview with Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen, make sure to check out this post on Elle Dispatch Fashion.
What do you think about Issa and Banana joining forces? Does this collection have “duchess” written all over it? Is this a collaboration you’ll shop? Leave a comment and let me know!
