Designer Peter Do is launching a Banana Republic collab with a capsule collection that will drop in selected stores and online  in October. It feeds neatly into the quiet luxury trend and is available with only unisex sizing. The collection includes tailoring with a utility edge, and a trench with a removable shearling collar. The lining is printed with a vintage map of Brooklyn, where Do is based. There are pieces inspired by Banana Republic’s own archive such as a silk shirt and chunky ribbed cashmere sweater with detachable arms.
