Hi, I'm Lindsey Frugier, market editor at W magazine.
00:10
I'm here today to talk about the reemergence
00:12
of '60s mod for spring.
00:14
Today's take on the trend is more wearable,
00:16
modern, and sophisticated.
00:17
Inspired by W's March issue's Fast & Chic portfolio,
00:21
I'm gonna show you how you can take the looks
00:23
from the runway into reality.
00:25
Here we have a geometric print shirtdress
00:27
in a poppy shade of red-orange and navy.
00:30
This is an essential shirtdress from
00:32
Banana Republic's new Mad Men collection.
00:35
They collaborated with costume designer Janie Bryant
00:38
to design a very on-trend and modern take
00:40
on mod for spring.
00:42
Here we have an adorable op art
00:44
black and white striped minidress from Maje.
00:46
It's definitely very short and very loud,
00:49
but this is something you could easily wear for summer.
00:51
You can dress it up with the '60s green
00:53
Proenza Schouler clutch and lucite Stella McCartney bangle.
00:57
You can dress up a graphic pant with
00:59
a Banana Republic Mad Men collection gingham trouser,
01:02
wear this with a knit t-shirt, a crisp white blouse.
01:05
And I like to kind of mix up the look
01:07
with a pair of white patent brogues from Tabitha Simmons.
01:10
You can also think of the look for evening
01:12
by wearing a Louis Vuitton mini-dress.
01:14
It's done in a soft palette of silver of white.
01:16
Wear this with a graphic but soft pearl cuff from Chanel,
01:20
and I would offset the look
01:21
with a pair of sequined kitten heels from Marc Jacobs.
01:24
When you think of '60s mod,
01:26
I think you always think of short miniskirts,
01:28
but it's nice to try a different longer silhouette,
01:31
something more A-line like this Proenza Schouler skirt.
01:33
I would opt to wear this with
01:35
a cross-body Stella McCartney bag
01:37
and a pair of silver metallic flats.
01:39
Here we have another great Banana Republic dress
01:42
from the Mad Men collection.
01:43
Very youthful and evocative of the 1960s.
01:46
You can wear this with a gold and blue
01:48
cocktail ring and bracelet.
01:50
Pair it with a ladylike top-handle bag
01:52
and another pair of flats,
01:53
and it's a great look for any occasion.
01:56
Thank you, and remember to pick up
01:57

02:01

02:02
of fashion, film, and art.
