My fellow Mad Men fans, the time has cometh!!
With Mad Men Season 2 about to be released on Tuesday, and Season 3 premiering on August 16th, my year is starting to look a whole lot more mad -- in a good way.
Banana Republic just announced late last week that they will be partnering with AMC to bring Mad Men-esque garb to malls across America. *Clasps hands in glee.* Now you, too, can dress like Joan, Betty or Peggy, even if you couldn't afford those Michael Kors ready-to-wear pieces last year. And if you've been wanting to get your guy into a Don Draper suit...well, they're going to be offering those too. (Swoon.)
Reuters is reporting that Banana Republic will be dressing all its mannequins in classic early ’60s styles and even offer a “Mad Men” style guide. (A little part of me just died happy.) As far as I'm aware of, the marketing event will start on July 21st.
I have a tendency to become obsessed with things I love, and this show has been my obsession du jour for the last year or so. With such little marketing merchandise out from AMC (I do covet this Sterling Cooper mousepad on Cafe Press, though. I know I'm such a nerd), I can't wait to get my mitts on a paper version of the Style Guide. And of course, I can't wait to check out the '60s styles in Banana Republic, which Reuters reports will be all about sharp suits, wide skirts, form-fitting sheath dresses, fedoras and pearls.
