We just can’t get enough of Kate Middleton! The new royal mom blew us all away yesterday in her amazing and appropriate Jenny Packham blue dress, and today, the “Kate Effect” on fashion continues, as we have a preview of the new Issa x Banana Republic collection. The collaboration includes a very familiar blue wrap dress that was inspired by the one Kate wore for her engagement and other Kate-esque looks. “We knew our customers would be thrilled to experience royal fashion at a Banana Republic price point,” said Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen.
Every dress here could easily be worn by the Duchess, who was kept in mind while this collection came together. “I love her youthful femininity,” said Simon. “I find it very timeless in a modern way. We wanted to design a collection that was versatile but playful with bold prints and feminine silhouettes.
The collection is a nod to safari chic and it’s all about versatility and being able to play with bold prints and feminine silhouettes. It combines the heritage of Banana Republic, with those African safari prints and the sophistication of Issa London.
