Mad for Mod

27 Feb

Ever wish you were born circa 1945? Not so that you could see the Beatles live, or even witness Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, but so that you’d be in your late teens/early twenties when Mod was in style? Well I have, and it looks like I’m getting my wish!

Mod is back in a big way, and thanks to the special two-hour premiere of Mad Men’s fifth season on April 7, a few companies are introducing Mad Men inspired collections. Whether you prefer shimmery makeup or mini skirts pick up an  item from one of these two brands to “mod”ify your current wardrobe.

Sheer, shimmery pastels for lips and nails plus a cheek color so sheer it looks shockingly nude. Estee Lauder’s Mad Men Collection offers a limited edition lipstick, blush and nail lacquer reminiscent of the popular 1960s subculture.

In stores today, the third installment of Banana Republic Mad Men focuses on the lively graphics and form flattering silhouettes of the 60s style. The 52 piece limited edition collection is designed by Mad Men costume designer Jamie Bryant and features pieces for women and men, including geometric silk scarves, gingham pants and straw fedoras.
