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

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork 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.

    • deathandthestrawberry

      MUST HAVE THE SPARKLY CARDIGAN. MUST!

      • 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

    SEQUIN CARDIGAN WANT.

  • 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.

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      YES! Have they been relegated to Eddie Bauer?

  • TrixieConQueso

    WHAT IN GAWD”S NAME IS GOING ON IN THE LAST SHOT? SOCKS AND BLANKIES? HELL TO THE NO. That ain’t fashion.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ 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.

  • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ 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

    Cute.

  • 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.

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com 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.
