"It was incredible to see the extraordinary reaction to the first Banana Republic 'Mad Men' capsule. I couldn't wait to work with Simon and his team to help inspire the new spring collection," says Bryant. "Drawing inspiration from some of my favorite spring pieces from the series, we've given fans the tools to create their own looks, just like their favorite 'Mad Men' characters – taking you from the office to country club and everywhere in between."
Banana Republic and AMC will celebrate the launch of the collection with two special access events. Customers and fans can visit Banana Republic's Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/bananarepublic) and AMC's Mad Men website ( www.amctv.com/shows/mad-men) for details, and are encouraged to join the conversation on Twitter using #BRMadMen.
The capsule is featured in Banana Republic's March advertising campaign, which will appear in print, outdoor, online, direct mail and in store. In addition, Banana Republic cardholders gain early access to a pre-sale of the full collection at 5:00 p.m. on February 29, 2012 before doors open to the public at 6:00 p.m.
