Back in July, we spoke with the costume designer for the forthcoming Anna Karenina film, who also curated and styled Banana Republic's Anna Karenina-inspired collection. Back then, wearing a fur stole seemed like a death wish. But as it starts to get chillier, we're even more intrigued by the retailer's take on film's modern take on 19th Century Russia's take on French clothing at the time, which apparently looked a lot like Dior in the 1950s (it's a long story). And good thing too because the collection is shoppable online and in stores as of today. Head here for all things fur, velvet, lace, and pearls and hop over the jump to see the lookbook.
