This is the dawning of a new day when it comes to Banana Republic, people. Long gone are the moments where we would simply venture into BR stores to buy jeans, t-shirts or great winter coats. Ok, let me take that back. Those days still exist in the great basics found in every Banana Republic store, but with AW15 the Banana Republic brand is truly taking on the trends, if not writing them entirely themselves as new season wonders. For autumn winter we're seeing colour pops of neon green, classic plaids presented in oversized coats and scarves, and rich textures paired with updated wardrobe classics - basically I would easily dare you to walk in store and not find something you want to walk away with. It's a tough one. But, I digress.
For those of you living in and around Kensington, or for those visiting soon, allow me to draw you in with a few pics of the new store - product of course being the highlight. While you may be easily distracted by the lime green essentials, I will just say that the decor of the new Banana Republic Kensington is quite beautiful, fresh and perfect for displaying items that long to make it in your closet edit this season. Look, love and visit soon!
