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 winner 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 Houston and San Antonio 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.
