Here’s an SAT-esque (Remember those pesky little tests?) analogy for stylish chicas everywhere.  Michelle Obama: Jason Wu is like Kate Middleton: ________.

Give up?

Issa London may not be a household name (yet), but everyone knows the iconic, cobalt blue wrap dress that Kate Middleton wore in her engagement photo to Prince Williams.  Similar to Mrs. O’s one shoulder Jason Wu inaugural gown, Kate’s blue dress catapulted Issa London to fashion fame.  Not only did demand for Kate’s dress crash the designer’s website, but now the London-based brand is collaborating with Banana Republic.

Banana Republic Issa London will be a 40-piece collection that launches on August 6 worldwide.  (Smart, cuz it’s not just the English and Americans who love Kate, amiright?)  So, what will we see in the collection?   African-inspired accessories, patterned scarves, and of course, wrap dresses.  Prices will range from $39-150.
