A bit of 19th century elegance is coming to a mall chain near you this fall. Banana Republic, in partnership with Focus Features, is creating a collection of clothes inspired by the forthcoming production of Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightly, Jude Law, and Aaron Johnson. (Alas, not Android Karenina.) The collection, which they describe as “a special holiday capsule” is being “styled and curated by twice-Academy Award-nominated Anna Karenina costume designer Jacqueline Durran.”
We haven’t seen any part of the line itself yet, but I can show you some of the lavish costumes Durran designed for the film. They are impressive.
