Tune out the online chatter and gimme-gimme gimmicks vying for your attention—who are the fashion designers of today making no-fuss, no-frills good clothing? Peter Do is undoubtedly on the list. Since launching his namesake label in 2018, the Vietnamese-born creative has consistently proven himself as one of America's next greats. His work is classic yet casually cool, always buzzing with an undercurrent of sensuality and gender-fluid fair—take his now-iconic peek-a-boo back blazers, for example. Do's next venture includes bringing his considered clothing to a mall near you: Peter Do collaborated with Banana Republic for a limited collection that's live now.
The designer offered a sneak peek into the collaboration during his eponymous label's Spring/Summer 2024 showing at Paris Fashion Week. Enthusiasts of Do will recognize several of the craftsman's codes—utility-minded outerwear, tailored tuxedo trousers, and perfectly pressed button-down shirts. Standout styles like pleated trench skirts and the signature sultry blazers emerge as clear front-runners from the drop but also as quintessential encapsulations of Do's M.O: slightly subverted practicality with a forward, androgynous slant.
The Peter Do x BR capsule collection features 28 pieces in total, including all those seen during the Paris sneak peek. "Designed by Peter Do with inspiration pulled from the Banana Republic archives, the capsule includes transformational and genderful ready-to-wear pieces and accessories in Peter Do’s signature neutral color palette, brought to life in Banana Republic’s classic silhouettes," reads a press release shared by the brand. "This is a modern collection designed for people living multi-faceted lives," continues the statement.
It's been an especially busy time for the 32 year-old-creative. In addition to the partnership with the famed mall brand, the designer joins Helmut Lang as creative director. Do, who honed his eye while working under Phoebe Philo at her Celine tenure (if there's ever a thing in the fashion industry that counts as a gold star on one's resume, it's that), debuted his first collection for the cult-classic label to kick off New York Fashion Week this September.
The collection is available for purchase online now and in select BR stores across the US, Canada, and Japan. Keep scrolling for a selection our bookmarked pieces to shop from the drop.
