Style star Olivia Palermo teamed up with Banana Republic to design a 70 piece capsule collection, which they unveiled during New York Fashion Week.

The brand has featured her monthly edits and favorite picks on its website and earlier this year, she curated a selection from their Spring 2017 collection for a series of pop-up shops.  

But on Saturday, the retailer and Palermo unveiled their most ambitious collaboration yet: a 70-piece capsule collection at its store in New York’s Flatiron District, alumna, who was dressed head to almost-toe in her Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo line — she admitted her shoes were from Givenchy — looked relaxed and happy at the launch.

“We’re taking classic pieces and elevating and putting a nice touch and spin onto it,” she said of the collection, which included pieces ranging from $48 to just under $1,000.”  

The pieces fit Palermo’s carefully cultivated brand of romantic polish. Pleats and billowy fabrics like chiffon were in plentiful supply. There were silky calf-length skirts in muted mustard yellows, a paisley dress on a background, brocaded jackets that gave the impression of weight without feeling heavy,  and soft velvety dresses with pussy-bow necklines.

Indeed, her collection included a pair of $598 leather pants, along with more moderately priced cable knit sweaters in the mid-$100 range. And chiffon in all forms was out in full force.

There was nothing particularly avant-garde about this collection; the most extreme — and expensive — item in the collection was a snakeskin leather trench coat with modest red buckles on the sleeves, which clocked in at $998. The buckles can be removed, Palermo said, and she suggested styling it with a white t-shirt and black skinny jeans.

Palermo hopes shoppers can view the pieces in her collection as pieces “you can keep in your wardrobe and build on … Something you should think about when investing is am I going to have this piece as I get older? Can I wear this when I’m 16 and can I wear this when I’m 70?”
