The best of Issa London’s line for Banana Republic
Confession: While the rest of the world was on royal baby watch, we were on Issa London for Banana Republic countdown. Both arrivals are true bundle of joys, yes?
The high-end designer who has clothed Kate Middleton in iconic pieces (remember the stunning blue wrap dress the princess wore during her engagement announcement?) has debuted a line at Banana Republic that us commoners can afford. And, on Aug. 14, full-priced dresses are an extra 40 percent. Pair that with 3 percent Cash Back from ShopAtHome.com — and you’ve got yourself a royal deal.
There’s so much we love about the limited-time capsule collection. Pieces like three-quarter sleeved cardigans will transition from air-conditioned summer days in the office to crisper fall days. Wrap dresses are dyed in rich jewel tones — like emerald, a deep purple and a ruby red. And, there’s a pop of “safari-chic” in the line with sophisticated neutrals and animal prints that are timeless and perfect for both fall and summer.
Here’s a few of the best deals from the line:
- Issa London Black Kimono Dress: This online exclusive balances out the season’s deep, slimming V-neck line with billowy kimono sleeves for a night-out dress that strikes a balance of sultry and sophisticated. Pair it with black strappy shoes and a delicate gold necklace.
- Issa Collection Wrap Top: Pantone predicted that emerald would be the color of 2013 and the lush green is stealing the spotlight. We love this classic wrap top that comes in a few different colors — including emerald of course. Wear it alone or pop it under a patterned cardigan for a work-ready look. The wrap waist belt and shirring will slim your middle.
- Issa Collection Three-Quarter Sleeve Wrap Tie Dress: This dress in “royal blue” will go fast. It’s maybe a shade off from the original dress Kate wore during her engagement and that sold out soon after she was photographed in it. The dress also comes in a merlot shade that is gorgeous for fall.
- Issa Collection Gold Nugget Leather Cord necklace: The capsule collection includes accessories, too! Scarves, envelope clutches a canvas tote and jewelry. One piece that sticks out to us is the earthy leather cord necklace that features a leather trim and shiny imitation gold beads.
