Banana Republic L’Wren Scott Collection

    • zenobar

      A lot of this is reading Montgomery Ward 1981 Holiday Wish Book.

    • International Model

      With all the Damask, the collection could be called “If These Walls Could Talk”. (I do love the fur sleeved sparkle dress…)

    • HobbitGirl

      The green dress and sparkly cardigans must be mine. If only I had the $$ to afford this.

        • LipstickForPigs

          Um…I have a sparkly cardigan just like those. I bought it off the clearance rack at Target 3 seasons ago. It’s still adorable.

      • kimmeister

        I’m hoping they’ll show up at the BR outlet in a few months.

      • carlaaxtman

        You’ll be ripping that green dress off of my cold, dead body. Once I’ve sold my first born in order to purchase it, that is.

        • ecallaw1977

          Isn’t this collection for Banana Republic? It’s probably not cheap, but it doesn’t seem like it would be “sell your firstborn” expensive.

          • carlaaxtman

            Oh good. So I only have to sell part of a kid. Good to know.

    • Zuber

      I love the collection; classy, elegant and feminine!

      • Clueless_Jock

        And, in Ninaspeak, cohesive and editorial.

        • Zuber

          Well Put Miss Nina! Couldn’t agree more.

    • Megan K

      I covet: the green jacket, the floral print blouse, and the blue and green dresses. And the black damask pants. T Lo, don’t hate on the blue lace! It’s such a nice change from holiday metallics.

    • Emily


    • Amanda Welliver

      Christina should have worn the blue dress…

    • kimmeister

      Is she selling an afghan as part of her collection? (last look)
      I like a lot of the pieces, but the dresses aren’t long enough for my lifestyle, and the shorty rompers have got to go.
      4th look down though – is that a green blouse under a black sweater, or is that one piece?

      • Nancer

        Yeah, rompers shouldn’t be worn on anyone over two years of age…

      • Caitlan Swartz

        You can get the blanket from what I read earlier and they’re two separate pieces.

        • Caitlan Swartz

          Deep Emerald Pussy-Bow Blouse ($110), Black Cashmere Knit Cami ($74)
          Lipstick Red Blanket ($124)

      • marlie

        Are the rompers PJs? If that’s the case, they might be ok. Maybe.

        • Caitlan Swartz

          Yeah, they’re PJ sets ($95)

    • Nancer

      I think there are some really cool pieces here. I would break them up, though; as presented, they seem a bit matchy. But what’s not to love about a sparkly black blazer, or a metallic fur mash-up dress, or a plaid lined blazer? Pair that tapestry skirt and blazer with different pieces and you have some really cute ensembles!

      • conniemd

        That was my thought, that there was a lot of separates that could be mixed and matched, which I always love.

        • Nancer

          Me too! It just adds so much versatility.

    • Sarah

      Wow. As someone who loves jewel-y greens and reds, plus sparkly, I would have expected to like this. I don’t. I actually really, really don’t. I esp. don’t like the acid green and emerald green juxtapositions. I know you could separate those pieces, but nonetheless, a huge turnoff.

    • MilaXX

      MEH, not even slightly excited.

      • tereliz

        The only thing that catches my eye is the green jacquard blazer.

    • Lily

      This seems VERY mid-late 200s J. Crew to me.

    • marlie

      A few nice pieces, but nothing that stand out to me as anything different than Banana’s usual winter/holiday collection.

    • LadyCelia

      I miss the Banana Republic of Jeeps and giraffes in the store.

      • DaringMiss

        I completely agree.

        I have even been known to troll Ebay looking for the vintage pieces.

      • Jessi03

        YES! Have they been relegated to Eddie Bauer?

    • TrixieConQueso


      • foodycatAlicia

        I thought it was pyjamas.

    • filmcricket

      I love a lot of this. I wouldn’t be able to wear much of it, but one of those sequinned cardis will be mine, dammit.

    • lunchcoma

      That red dress? That is my dress.

      The damask calls out to me, but I know that it’s just going to break my heart yet again.

    • RoseJB

      This all looks very dated to me. From the hair to the clothes. Kind of Cher Horowitz, no?
      Maybe it’s the model.

      • demidaemon

        Definitely the model. See below in my comment where I ask if this is actually Alicia Silverstone.

    • Pepper Pan

      I’m sorry, but the photoshop disaster here is ruining the party for me. TEN-FEET-LONG-LEGS. Crazy knees. WTH?

      • Meredith

        ….Are you saying they elongated her legs??

    • NightOwl

      I like shiny.

    • Danielle

      Liking the 5th look, with the purple pants.

    • Julie Parr

      This will just be another example of “I’m not fast enough to get the goods” like Target/Missoni and H&M/Marant. Why even care?

      • Imasewsure

        Plus none of it is well made at these prices… I don’t really get the whole concept particularly with this collection which looks like the cheaper brands at Macys anyway

    • Rhonda Shore

      What’s with the horse blanket?

    • kittentoes

      That’s a lot of pussy bow.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      I dig the red dress. That’s it. Everything with pants feels rather…Joe Fresh. Like, I wouldn’t pay L’Wren or BR prices for those. I like a couple of the blazers, but eh.

    • YoungSally

      I’m sure this wasn’t the TLo intention, but this post feels like the commercial after “see the stars wear the clothes – now you can buy them too!!!”

    • Qitkat

      I do like the striped lined black blazer. Several other looks are rather cute as separates. And I own a sparkly red cardigan, but it’s an overall sparkle and always looks like I’ve overdone it so I rarely wear it. These cardigans are more wearable.

    • annabelle archer

      If I were an East Coast prep, who was 5’10 and weighed a buck fifteen, maybe.

    • Anna Vasquez

      I like the giant blankie. Because my office is cold.

    • crash1212


    • Shawn EH

      Very feminine, some look like they might not age well, though.

    • Headphone Princess

      I can’t quite figure out why Target collabs make me stay up until 3am on Twitter to snag the bag/shirt/dress I want (hi, Philip Lim) and BR collabs make me cringe and say ‘meh, I can splurge at J. Crew and do better’.

    • bravobravp

      tit bows for everyone!

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      I just hate all of it. MEH MEH MEH. If the clothes are like something I’ve had forever (read, that lovely red dress, which is a forever kind of piece) then I’m not really interested. zenobar got it right with the “Montgomery Ward 1981 Holiday Wish Book.” Indeedy!

    • Chris ‘Supermarky’ Maher

      I like these clothes and I really like the model.

    • cowper

      No thank you. I do not want to look like an ad for Flavor Paper wallpaper.

    • Mona_Visa

      Hate so much of this.

    • JulieTy

      Lips print = Prada circa 2000.

    • Vera

      Normally, I love Scott’s designs, but not this collection. Perhaps I can afford the t-shirt, though.

    • Anastasia Beaverhausen

      It’s all quite dreadful, isn’t it? So awful.

    • rondele

      The green skirt and jacket–Christmas wrapping paper. In fact, I could wrap a lot of presents with quite a bit of these fabrics. It’s a weird mish-mash of fabrics. L’Wren’s style is o.k., but color and fabric are a problem for me.

    • demidaemon

      Who is the model in this spread? Because she sure reminds me of Alicia Silverstone.

    • SewingSiren

      If Christiana was obliged to wear something from this collection, she should have chosen the green and left the red to Jessica.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Underwhelming for L’Wren. I feel like Ann Taylor already did the sequined cardigan…years ago.

    • MannahattaMamma

      That’s *exactly* the collection I’d like if I were 6 feet tall & weighed 72 pounds & worked in an office where I didn’t actually have to walk around or bend over or, you know, move. So basically if I were L’Wren Scott.

    • fishmermaidman

      Hmm, looks exactly like *non* L’Wren BR clothes.

    • guest2visits

      I didn’t think this was L’Wren or BR either…..I liked the blouse until I saw the print was lips.
      Nice enough sweaters. Black on black jeans. Green dress, 3rd from last.
