Your First Look at Banana Republic’s New Marrimekko Collection

This might just be their best collab yet.

Our fave look of the bunch. So cute, right?

Banana Republic has had a bumpy past in the collaboration department. First, there was the Mad Men collection that, well, you could hardly tell was a Mad Men collection. But then they nailed it with L’Wren Scott’s collaboration. And to top it off, the fabulous Marissa Webb is now at the helm as creative director. (She spent over a decade at J.Crew, and before that, Club Monaco.) So needless to say, we weren’t sure to what to think when we got word about the new Marrimekko collection.

But with structured full-bodied skirts and flowy tunics in punchy prints, it’s a winner.


The collaboration debuts on May 22nd in select stores and online, and it include 25 pieces of women's apparel and accessories. Plus, it adheres to Marrimekko's environmental focus with all materials in the collection made from natural fibers. Prices will range from $39.50 to $140.
