“I feel like the industry is going through sort of a collaboration exhaustion, and I didn’t want to add any more to that conversation if I didn’t have anything new to say. If we do this, I said, we have to do it in a way where we don’t sacrifice any design integrity…After visiting the stores, I realized the quality is really amazing.”
Peter Do, Vogue.
The Peter Do x Banana Republic collab sounds promising doesn’t it? While we await his debut collection for Helmut Lang at NYFW next month, we’re being teased with this capsule Banana Republic semi-reveal, which lands in October.
The video is very enticing, as is the description of a four-piece suit consisting of tuxedo blazer, trousers, utility shirt, and skirt, and the cotton trench with removable shearling collar. (Love these swishy pleats!) Vogue also flags a “chunky ribbed cashmere sweater inspired by an oversize knit that Kate Moss modeled in a 1990s BR campaign”. Wait… where did we see this recently?!
