When duchess Kate Middleton first announced her engagement to Prince William, all the while showing off her gorgeous blue dress made by designer Issa London, the world went wild. Since then, Issa London has been a name everyone is trying to get their hands on. The only problem? Issa London is expensive and only a limited amount of people are able to afford to wear the name.

Recently, Banana Republic has announced that they will be participating in an in-store collaboration with the designer in order to make the clothes accessible to all. The collaboration will include 40 pieces and will be available in both the United States and internationally.

Lately I have noticed that animal printed pieces have been very popular amongst many designers. Issa London is no exception. The collaboration will include designs such as animal patterned scarves, and jewelry made out of gold nuggets and cord – both inspired by African culture. The best part is each piece will only be between $30 and $150!

I personally think this collaboration is a great idea. Although Issa London is very popular in England, this collaboration will make the designer name more well known in the United States. Lately Banana Republic is a store that has been having trouble being seen as a “young” and “modern” store. Collaborating with such a new and fun designer will help the store begin transforming their image to something that is a little bit less serious.

Are you excited to try on some of the pieces from the limited edition Issa London and Banana Republic Republic?
