Narciso Rodriguez Given New Advisory Role At Banana Republic

Narciso Rodriguez has been quite the busy man lately. Months after designing a collection for Kohl’s Design Nation, Rodriguez is making another big move involving mainstream powerhouse Banana Republic.

According to a press release, Rodriguez was given an ‘advisory role’ with Banana Republic, which will “allow for a top industry talent to contribute to an already strong design and product development team.” to “build upon the strengths of the brand.” Rodriguez will be advising Banana Republic’s Executive Vice President of Design and Creative Director, Simon Kneen, on infusing his famed modern American sportswear aesthetic into the brand’s offerings.

Narciso’s expertise will be a great complement to Simon’s strengths and to our incredible design team,” said President of Banana Republic, Jack Calhoun {who created the role specially for Rodriguez}.

Rodriguez will step into his new role on August 20th and get right to work on the Fall 2013 collection. I'm very excited to see Banana Republic's new look.
