I love the brand Milly so I was delighted to learn about the collaboration between Milly designer, Michelle Smith, and Banana Republic for a capsule collection. This modern preppy collection is inspired by the easy-breezy lifestyle of the Hamptons, and contains 46 pieces for women and 16 items for men. The items feature six of Milly’s classic prints, as well as one never-before-seen pattern created just for the collection. The women’s offerings include woven colorblock maxi dresses, embroidered mini-skirts, and patterned shorts—ranging in price from $45 to $175—in summer colors like lime, coral, and navy, as well as accessories like jewelry, handbags, and lightweight scarves, which range from $39.50 to $130. Menswear runs from $25 to $65. The line will be available starting May 30, 2013, both online and in stores.
