So apparently the lead costume designer at Mad Men concocted this collection of inspired looks for Banana Republic. Do I like? Sure. But honestly – its not really Mad Men is it? Its just a lil bit retro and a lil bit modern 50′s meet 2011 nouveau chic. Really you can make this look by going into any retail store right now and mixing and matching.
If you want to be even more creative – go to a vintage shop and hit it up on a regular basis for some extra crinoline, cute sweater sets and some sexy hosiery for a fraction of what BR is hawking these outfits.
The Mad Men® Collection Houndstooth Dress $185
I do find the Houndstooth Dress for $185 romantic. It looks nicely constructed and nice quality. Its hard to find this baby in the stores right and sizes are limited but I think it would make a nice staple piece.
The Mad Men® Collection Betty Dress $185
The Mad Men® Collection Betty Dress $185 illustrates my first point to a T. See what I mean? Its nice and all but for $185 – the construct works but the colour is meh.
The Mad Men® Collection
Overall, the looks are clean, pretty and wearable. If you are keen wait until they go on sale. If your size is sold out..check ebay asap.
There’s a lot of yuck news yes, but the good news is, is that MM returns in March 2012. The first episode to be directed by Jon Hamm and most importantly, they have just gone into production in the last few weeks.
