Banana Republic- New York Fashion Week SS18
Olivia has been working with Banana Republic as their first ever women’s style ambassador for several months now and starting this New York Fashion Week. “Fashion is for everyone,” says Olivia Palermo. “The way that we shop today is about mixing and matching,” Palermo also says. All of the pieces have clear military influence which, as we learned from the WWD meeting; It is all about power dressing for the season. I personally liked this collection. It was not what I thought. I was telling my Editor; this will be a boring show. And this collection was far from boring. It was expensive and classy. With this collection, it is clear that Banana Republic is finally understanding that girls have style and even the most classy woman likes a little street style. Olivia Palermo understood how to make boring looks to chic. Another thing one should take form is how important it is to find joy in dressing ourselves.
“I took their key pieces and elevated them,” she says. “So they’re basics, but special basics.” Palermo demonstrates how New York females can use basic looks and turn them to full-on fashion moments.
