#FashionCrush: I pre-viewed Banana Republic’s new Milly Collection!

Oh and was the 1st one to purchase one of their items!! As you do…

So, on yesterday morning, I was very lucky to be one of the bloggers invited to preview the new Milly Collection at the Banana Republic store in Dubai Mall! Some really cool pieces, lots of colours, really quirky accessories, perfect for the Summer!

One of the items I tried on was a dress previously spotted on Mariana Menounos (obviously she looks MUCH much better than I do!). At AED550 it’s a real bargain and a piece which will take you from the beach to an evening out! LOVE IT! Other pieces were sported by celebs including the super stylish Olivia Palermo & the fabulous Zoe Saldana!


I treated myself to a lovely coral flowy shirt which I can wear with tailored trousers to work or with lose pants over the weekend. So versatile and on-trend! Again, massive CRUSH!

A little bit about this fabulous collaboration:

Banana Republic and Milly founder and designer Michelle Smith introduced the Banana Republic Milly Collection – a limited-edition capsule inspired by the summer sophistication of the Hamptons. The women’s collection is a natural extension for Milly – a unique innovation for the design partnership.

The Banana Republic Milly Collection marries the iconic Banana Republic sense of modern style with Milly’s signature vintage-inspired prints and patterns for a collection that feels equal parts sophisticated and playful. The Banana Republic Milly Collection includes pieces for women and men, such as feminine silhouettes in splashes of neon for her and tailored separates in bold prints for him.

The more than 30-piece collection of women apparel and accessories features original designs that incorporate a new print created exclusively for the capsule as well as six beloved Milly prints that have been updated specifically for these collaborative designs.

Covetable women’s pieces range from maxi dresses to shorts in a rainbow of on-trend colors, including lime, coral, and navy, to versatile poolside totes and summer scarves. Apparel pieces range in price from 195 – 550 aed; jewelry and accessory pieces range from 150 –595 aed.
