Banana Republic S/S11

Spring and summer are not only for flowers and new fashion lines. It’s also the best season to travel, explore and go on an adventure! With that in mind, Banana Republic presents a collection of endless versatility, effortless shapes and tactile finishes that lend an air of discovery to each piece.

As with a lot of trends this season, white seems to be the perfect summer staple with airy whites headlining the range alongside subtle colours of oceanic hues from watery blue to slate grays, accompanying the feminine florals and rain forest-inspired prints. Silhouettes are loose and long with breezy maxi shirts, draw-string linen pants, washed leather blazers and drop-waist dresses while slub cotton leggings are topped with denim military blazer and boxy parachute blouses for that dreamy adventurous look.

The menswear is equally relaxed with lots of chinos and safari jackets alongside easy-to-wear utilitarian classics, cargo pants, patch-pocket shirts, walking shorts and suede Clarks desert boots. Continuing the journey, contemporary continental essentials including madras shirting, Henley knits and heritage army jackets make navigation easy while floribunda-patterned dresses add the final touch to the artful statement of the collection. Fun, chic and easy-going, this ensemble will ensure you have everything to look good for your perfect getaway this summer.
