Banana Republic L’Wren Scott Collection

A lot of this is reading Montgomery Ward 1981 Holiday Wish Book.
With all the Damask, the collection could be called “If These Walls Could Talk”. (I do love the fur sleeved sparkle dress…)
The green dress and sparkly cardigans must be mine. If only I had the $$ to afford this.
MUST HAVE THE SPARKLY CARDIGAN. MUST!
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.
I’m hoping they’ll show up at the BR outlet in a few months.
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.
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.
Oh good. So I only have to sell part of a kid. Good to know.
I love the collection; classy, elegant and feminine!
And, in Ninaspeak, cohesive and editorial.
Well Put Miss Nina! Couldn’t agree more.
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.
SEQUIN CARDIGAN WANT.
Christina should have worn the blue dress…
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?
Yeah, rompers shouldn’t be worn on anyone over two years of age…
You can get the blanket from what I read earlier and they’re two separate pieces.
Deep Emerald Pussy-Bow Blouse ($110), Black Cashmere Knit Cami ($74)
Lipstick Red Blanket ($124)
Are the rompers PJs? If that’s the case, they might be ok. Maybe.
Yeah, they’re PJ sets ($95)
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!
That was my thought, that there was a lot of separates that could be mixed and matched, which I always love.
Me too! It just adds so much versatility.
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.
MEH, not even slightly excited.
The only thing that catches my eye is the green jacquard blazer.
This seems VERY mid-late 200s J. Crew to me.
A few nice pieces, but nothing that stand out to me as anything different than Banana’s usual winter/holiday collection.
I miss the Banana Republic of Jeeps and giraffes in the store.
I completely agree.
I have even been known to troll Ebay looking for the vintage pieces.
YES! Have they been relegated to Eddie Bauer?
WHAT IN GAWD”S NAME IS GOING ON IN THE LAST SHOT? SOCKS AND BLANKIES? HELL TO THE NO. That ain’t fashion.
I thought it was pyjamas.
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.
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.
This all looks very dated to me. From the hair to the clothes. Kind of Cher Horowitz, no?
Maybe it’s the model.
Definitely the model. See below in my comment where I ask if this is actually Alicia Silverstone.
I’m sorry, but the photoshop disaster here is ruining the party for me. TEN-FEET-LONG-LEGS. Crazy knees. WTH?
….Are you saying they elongated her legs??
I like shiny.
Liking the 5th look, with the purple pants.
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?
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
What’s with the horse blanket?
That’s a lot of pussy bow.
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.
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!!!”
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.
If I were an East Coast prep, who was 5’10 and weighed a buck fifteen, maybe.
I like the giant blankie. Because my office is cold.
Very feminine, some look like they might not age well, though.
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’.
tit bows for everyone!
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!
I like these clothes and I really like the model.
No thank you. I do not want to look like an ad for Flavor Paper wallpaper.
Hate so much of this.
Lips print = Prada circa 2000.
Normally, I love Scott’s designs, but not this collection. Perhaps I can afford the t-shirt, though.
It’s all quite dreadful, isn’t it? So awful.
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.
Who is the model in this spread? Because she sure reminds me of Alicia Silverstone.
If Christiana was obliged to wear something from this collection, she should have chosen the green and left the red to Jessica.
Underwhelming for L’Wren. I feel like Ann Taylor already did the sequined cardigan…years ago.
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.
Hmm, looks exactly like *non* L’Wren BR clothes.
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.
