Tis the summer season of designer and retail shop collaborations. The latest one joins together Banana Republic and style icon Olivia Palermo. As Palermo serves as their Global Style Ambassador of the summer, I’m left with an interesting taste in my mouth. With hand selected pieces, Banana Republic is featuring ‘Olivia Palermo Picks’.
After hearing this news I was quite excited, curious about what selections she would design and deem worthy of attaching her name. I was somewhat disappointed to find the “Picks” to be scarce and rather bland. Sure there are a few ruffles here and there, but after looking at the rest of Banana Republic‘s line, I was much more impressed with their retail selection. Despite the glum “Olivia Palermo Picks”, I did manage to find a few pieces that added a glimmer of hope to the otherwise dismal line. Despite this, don’t give up on Banana Republic as I saw several adorable, colorful garbs for purchase. Long live the Banana!
