As if the biting cold of winter didn’t have us daydreaming enough about our summery Hamptons getaways, Banana Republic is giving us another reason to look forward to the summer season. This May, the stylish brand teams up with Milly founder and designer Michelle Smith to launch the Banana Republic Milly Collection, a limited-edition capsule inspired by the summer sophistication of the Hamptons. The collection marries the iconic Banana Republic sense of modern style with Milly’s signature vintage-inspired prints and patterns for a collection that feels equal parts sophisticated and playful. With a variety of pieces for both men and women – think colorblock maxi dresses, printed mini skirts, printed scarves, bright v-necks and patterned polo shirts – the line features feminine silhouettes with splashes of neon and tailored separates with bold prints. The more than 60-piece collection features original designs that incorporate a new Milly-esque print. Banana Republic and Milly unite to create a truly sophisticated collection of Hamptons-chic necessities that’ll fit perfectly into your fun-loving summer season activities – even if they’re only in your dreams, for now.
Available May 2013 at Banana republic stores nationwide and BananaRepublic.com for $24.50 - $175.
