Banana Republic's Mad Men Collection Returns for Spring 2012

Back by popular demand, Banana Republic's retro-influenced Mad Men capsule is returning for another installment. Starting March 1—that's almost an entire month before the show's fifth-season premiere airs on AMC, for those of you keeping track—you'll be able to snap up more nipped-waist dresses, lace tops and sweet cardigans fit for the Sterling Cooper crowd.

Once again, the '60s-minded designs are a collaborative effort between Banana Republic and Mad Men's costume designer Janie Bryant. The collection includes over 40 pieces for both men and women, all of which will be available next month both at Banana Republic's freestanding stores and at bananarepublic.com. And while picking up a tailored floral sheath or two might not get you Joan Holloway's to-die-for curves, they'll certainly win you compliments. Especially if you wear them while doing the Charleston.
