Faux fur wraps, party dresses and wool coats: See all 13 looks from the Banana Republic Anna Karenina collection
In July, we were offered a taste of the Anna Karenina-inspired collection for Banana Republic and now that it’s October we have the full meal deal. The line is ready to launch in stores on October 31, meaning it’s ready to go for the holiday party circuit.
The collection—which is exclusively all-black, save for one red low-back dress—features faux fur wraps, hats, scarves, and vests. It’s easily an accurate depiction of the Russian inspiration from the film (and book) while simple-yet-elegant fitted dresses offer a modern touch. The pieces are ideal for a Canadian winter with cape coats, military-inspired double-breasted wool jackets, and classic leather driving gloves. For those just looking to amp up their current cocktail attire, sparkling statement jewellery and clutches play a leading role in the collection.
From the original novel by Leo Tolstoy in 1877 to a film starring Keira Knightley and a capsule collection at Banana Republic in 2012, Anna Karenina proves to be timeless.
