The sixth season of one of the best TV series Mad Men is scheduled to premiere on April 7, 2013, with a two-hour episode.
The show’s huge popularity and critical acclaim convinced American retail chain Banana Republic to once again prepare a Mad Man inspired collection. They collaborated with Janie Bryant, Mad Men’s Emmy Award-winning costume designer, and prepared a collection that takes its inspiration from costumes featured in the latest seasons of the series and reflects the mod vibe of the late ’60s.
In a recent article on AMCTV’s website Simon Kneen, Banana Republic’s Creative Director and Executive Vice President, said, “We took Janie’s mod inspiration for the costumes on-screen and translated it in a way that today’s Don or Megan will aspire to wear.”
In the same article Janie Bryant said, that Megan’s spirit and fashion-forward thinking was really inspirational.
Some other influences:
- Joan’s form-fitting silhouette,
- Megan’s shift dresses in psychedelic prints,
- Peggy’s matching accessories,
- and Megan’s youthful effect on Don’s classic wardrobe.

This year’s collection is the third Mad Men inspired collection from Banana Republic. It all started in August 2011 and continued in spring 2012.
I strongly believe that we’ll see the fourth collection in 2014.
