First Look at Marissa Webb for Banana Republic (It's GOOD)

Ever since Banana Republic, king of the khaki, announced that it tapped Marissa Webb, former womenswear designer at JCrew, as creative director, we've been speculating about—brace yourself for a buzzword—what the new direction will look like. And now Marissa herself has finally offered a big hint on her Instagram.

There's an oversized men's coat happening (called it) and a graphic tote, but since she doesn't specify if all or only a few pieces are BR, we can't make any full conclusions. But it's enough to stir up some excitement nonetheless.
