Michelle Obama, Olivia Palermo, Gwen Stefani, Pippa Middleton, Taylor Swift, Naomi Watts, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum…What do they all have in common ?Answer: all of them have been seen wearing Banana Republic!And the reason is very simple – Its because this iconic American brand knows exactly how to create fantastic basic clothes with a really “up” design…
Banana Republic’s reputation for quality and comfortable clothing was one of its key promises since its creation in 1978. And now, we see that Banana Republic has recently made a further enhancing change to its product line by taking the best that the brand traditionally offers and has produced exciting collections that are more contemporary, more chic and elegant that are more in touch with the latest fashion tendencies that we expect from great retailers.
Banana Republic has introduced a more “casual chic” style designed for men and women who like comfortable clothes, but with excellent detailed work with minute details that make you feel good to wear.
My precious discovery: much of the collection of shirts and trousers are made from materials that don’t require any ironing as they are made from soft high quality cotton higher, using high technology – perfect pieces for active people on the go and that travel a lot.
I invite you to visit the Paris flagship…
Banana Stores are known for a crazy allure, the Paris store is simply wonderful. Located on the famous Champs-Élysées just near the Avenue Montaigne, Its a large store covering about 1500 m2, divided into cosy niches hosting the different collections.
The grand floor is decorated with marble and rosettes in black stone which invites us to descend an impressive staircase. There is also a beautiful vintage lift that has been restored. You will arrive at the lower ground floor where the decoration has been inspired by the Art Deco style with vintage ebony furnishings.
In each of these “rooms” you find distinct lines of different styles for different times of the day … From conformable stay home clothes to a more elegant casual style to accompany you in work.
In this space you will find the true DNA of the brand – the best cotton shirts executed in stylish colours, great pieces in cashmere, fluid dresses in silk, perfectly cut trousers.
The best surprise was to know the incredible service to Personal Shopper that is free of charge!
