In April of 2014, Banana Republic announced a recent shuffle in management and appointed it-girl, Marissa Webb, as the new Creative Director of the label. A former designer for J. Crew, Webb left in 2012 to pursue a label all her own. Her love of layering, nod to minimalism and cool-girl style had many wondering how the new brand would fate. With two successful seasons under her belt, it came as no surprise when Banana Republic, seeking to mix things up, appointed Webb to assist as Creative Director over the brand. Alas, #thenewBR was launched.
The fall collection at Banana Republic is young, fresh and crisp. With a robust collection for men and women, the new styles still cater to the old faithful’s of the brand and welcome new faces. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites of the new His and Hers collection from the label.
