Best Designer Partnership To Date? Narciso Rodriguez Joins Banana Republic

Narciso Rodriguez resort '13 (left) gives us just a taste of the looks we might soon expect to see from the newest Banana Republic (right, fall '12) partnership.
Banana Republic is a reliable source for, well, things that we know we'll always find at Banana Republic — clean, classic work wear; sleek separates that can mix into any wardrobe; and of-the-moment collaborations featuring style influencers who need no introduction.
While Banana's most-recent Trina Turk collab and last year's major Janie Bryant-infused, Mad Men-inspired collection have particularly shined, WWD reports today that the brand has tapped a new company advisor: Narciso Rodriguez.
The CFDA award-winning designer will be joining the brand and working with Banana Republic executive vice president and creative director Simon Kneen to help mold future designs for the faithful retailer. Keep your eyes peeled for Rodriguez's modern-with-a-touch-of-drama aesthetic in the Banana Republic looks set to appear in fall '13. And get ready for your classic work wear to see a serious upgrade.
