Banana Republic Debuts the Issa London Collection on 8/8

Who could forget the iconic blue wrap dress that then-commoner Kate Middleton donned for her engagement? It created a fashion frenzy overnight, and catapulted designer Issa London to global fame. And now, this dress (originally priced at $575) will be made available at Banana Republic for only $130, along with nearly 40 other pieces of apparel and accessories for women, under the Banana Republic Issa London Collection.

The Lowdown: Banana Republic Issa London Collection

After celebrating the power of women in a Mad Men‘s world, Banana Republic will now feature Issa London’s signature prints, elegant draping, and figure-flattering silhouettes. The capsule envisions to be part of your summer to fall transition wardrobe, with its nod to safari chic. Think exotic leopard and zebra prints paired with neutral and jewel-tone hues.

The price points are fairly wallet-friendly, considering the designer’s clientele. Apparel ranges from $69.50 – $150.00, while accessories are at $39.50 – $150.00.

The capsule collection launches exclusively at select Banana Republic retail locations worldwide and online August 8, 2013.
