Banana Republic just released its second collection with Kevin Love, pro basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and if you thought it couldn’t get any better, this collection has it all. With a range of pieces including jackets, sweaters, duffel bags, chino pants and more, each piece is divided into four looks that he has created: Elevated Varsity, Classic Edge, Modern Utility and Street Smart. Prices range from $14 for select accessories to a $548 jacket. Head below to find our top picks from the new line.
Love shared more about the collaboration:
“I’m proud of the BR/K.LOVE-18 collection Banana Republic and I created together, I was inspired by Banana Republic’s utility heritage, premium quality and tailored performance sportswear staples, and we combined those with nods to my Portland roots, which make this capsule my own and truly reflect my personal style. I’m excited for our fans to experience it all.” He also stated, “I think you can never be overdressed.”
Fall is Kevin’s favorite season to dress for and one thing he loves is a good jacket. The Elevated Varsity look features a Double Breasted Topcoat that is very on-trend for fall. Its mid-length is flattering and would look great with slacks for an event or out with jeans on weekends. In this look he pairs the coat with the Air Spun Stripe Sweater and the Performance Stretch Wool Track Pant. I especially love the Air Spun Stripe Sweater for this fall and it’s available in three color options.
Adding a performance look to his new line, the Classic Edge is polished, fashionable and timeless to wear for years to come. The suit for this look was designed to feel comfortable as if you were in sweatpants and is a perfect outfit if you are going to an event. It features a small pinstripe design and its unique, knit fabric is designed to move with you. Plus, I love that the jacket can be easily dressed up or down with slacks or jeans.
Camouflage is a huge-trend for this season and Kevin Love has established the style in his look called Modern Utility. The Camo Shirt is a slim-fit design and the fabric is made from a soft, smooth cotton blend material from a Japanese mill. He pairs this unique and stylish shirt with Cargo Pants to make for a military-inspired outfit.
Finally, the fourth style from this collection is Kevin Love’s most laid back and it’s called Street Smart. Included is a Cozy Turtleneck Sweater that’s paired with an Easy Waist Jogger Pant. Kevin Love noted that this is the closest to what he would wear on a day-to-day basis and loves that Street Smart gives you a polished and comfortable look.
