Olivia Palermo was seen wearing elephant printed shorts this week, making us all wish that her Milly x Banana Republic would be available just in time for the start of summer in the Hamptons! The preppy collection, inspired by the Hamptons and Nantucket, debuts this Thursday, May 30, 2013, available here. There is a Milly Mixer tonight at 5pm at select stores throughout the U.S, see here. We are loving Olivia’s printed shorts from the capsule collection, and fortunately this is going to be a huge trend going forward this summer. Get ready for summer in the Hamptons!
Milly’s designer and founder, Michelle Smith, grew up in New Milford, Connecticut. Her collections have always embodied the life of a New Englander. Much of her design and inspiration from the Milly Spring summer 2013 collection come through in the Milly x Banana Republic collection, such as the banana leaf print and the lime and coral colors.
Below, we show some of our favorite looks from the Milly x Banana Republic lookbook including printed dresses and shorts with printed blouses. Olivia is shown wearing the printed shorts with a white printed Kelly Wearstler blouse, YOim oxford shoes, a black blazer, and her croc embossed Givenchy Antigona bag with Wunderkin cateye animal print trimmed sunglasses. Which is your favorite look from the Milly x Banana Republic collection?
