For men, the silhouette was slim for suits in the vein of mid-century Continental - picture 1950s ad men - and the palette du jour, flannel grey. Chunky knits rounded out casual offerings and crinkled white denim looked particularly fresh.
A halftone backdrop of the stark branches of trees emphasized the minimal color palette of the collections as a whole - all flannel grays, inky blacks, crisp whites, chalky charcoals punctuated by just two looks in fuschia, functioning in the collection like a smear of bright lipstick on a bare face.
Banana Republic launched its upscale version of the label this spring called Monogram, featuring more or less a similar BR style as their regular collection, but in more luxurious fabrics and more refined construction. Their first stand-alone boutique opened earlier this month in New York on Bleecker Street and is also available online.
