Banana Republic’s vice president of women’s design Melloney Birkett took a calm, casual approach to holiday, working in neutrals — black, gray and pale pink — on mélange knits, tailoring and the knit track pant that’s become ubiquitous in the market. It was a quiet collection, punctuated by sturdy coats, such as reverse shearlings and a shaggy, ivory woven style.
A similar vibe came through in the men’s wear, where vice president of men’s design Michael Anderson focused on classic staples including peacoats, slim tailored suits and knits in a dark palette. Many of the outerwear looks featured utilitarian details such as patch pockets on vests and cropped jackets.
