Mad Men designer aims for contemporary look with new Black Halo collaboration
Mad Men may be over but the hit show's much-lauded costume designer isn't finished yet.
Janie Bryant, the Emmy award winning designer who put together all those cool '60s clothes worn by Don Draper, Peggy, Joan and the whole ad agency gang, has created a limited-edition capsule collection with Black Halo designer Laurel Berman.
“I’m a huge Mad Men fan, and there’s such a connection with our brand in the sense that we are classic, with a lot of pencil dresses,” Berman told Women's Wear Daily.
The 25-piece Janie Bryant for Black Halo collection features the brand's signature figure-hugging dresses, along with lace jumpsuits, sleek crop tops, pencil skirts and slacks in Bryan's signature patterned and textured fabrics in rich colors. Among the standouts are a crop top with full-skirt in a rich floral jacquard, a light-blue floral-embossed Neoprene sheath dress, and floral slacks and matching strapless peplum top.
The collection, available at Saks Fifth Avenue in San Antonio and Houston or online, ranges from $300-$500.Berman and Bryant recently celebrated the launch at a Hollywood party with guests that includes actress Garcelle Beauvais and Boardwalk Empire co-star Meg Steedle.
