Can I say how excited I am that Marissa Webb is the new Creative Director for Banana Republic? I mean she’s making it cool to shop at Banana Republic again! No longer are the days of lackluster boxy dresses, unflattering jackets and boring shoes. Yawn. I’ve always been a fan of her masculine feminine style layered just right with her sassy edge. While it’s long rival J. Crew might be for the color loving, print obsessed classic girl that appreciates a lot of bling and bright lips, I feel the new BR will be for the less than frilly, perhaps a bit more minimal, cool girl that loves masculine pieces fitted for the stylish female.
Can’t wait to see what she comes up with! I feel the current collection translates a lot of her style.
