Front row favourite Olivia Palermo’s new Ba­nana Repub­lic col­lab­o­ra­tion; French­girl chic lands in Bri­tish Columbia via San­dro and Maje; H&M’s Stu­dio Col­lec­tion ar­rives in stores; and Ter­ron Moore’s Woke Let­ter for Teen Vogue strikes a nerve.

F ormer re­al­ity-TV star Olivia Palermo has segued her so­phis­ti­cated style into a suc­cess­ful ca­reer as a model, muse and de­signer. Her lat­est ven­ture with BA­NANA REPUB­LIC, says Palermo, was a true col­lab­o­ra­tion. “Keep­ing the tone of Ba­nana while bring­ing my own aes­thetic to it was re­ally im­por­tant,” she says. By chang­ing lengths and ad­ding de­tails to well-loved Ba­nana Repub­lic ba­sics, she was able to make the pieces her own. The 57-piece col­lec­tion in­cludes a pleat-sleeved top in marigold, cropped leather pants in olive (a Palermo sig­na­ture) and a tiered vel­vet shirt­dress in bur­gundy. “When I get dressed, I like to in­cor­po­rate colour,” says Palermo. Nat­u­rally, the red mil­i­tary trench coat with gold de­tails is a favourite: “A great over­coat gives you a boost of con­fi­dence.” Palermo, who also styled the col­lec­tion, added sharp ac­ces­sories like scarves to put “on your wrist or bag.” There are so many pieces to choose from, but Palermo’s ad­vice is sim­ple: “I think it’s im­por­tant to try what catches your eye.” We couldn’t agree more.
