Banana Republic's Simon Kneen on What What He Wants to See More of on Mad Men
The third episode of Mad Men season six airs tonight, and with it are sure to come many more amazing pieces of sartorial eye candy! Last week, the Drapers, Olsons, and Holloways made a triumphant return, as we saw Don devolve to his old philandering ways, Betty venture to the East Village in search of a very lost girl, and Peggy take the reigns at her new job. InStyle caught up with Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen—who co-created a collection with Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant—at the brand's fall preview in New York, where he ruminated on what he would like to see more of on the show. "Obviously, amazing clothes," Kneen told InStyle.com. "I hope it gets a little more upbeat, because it was getting darker and darker and darker. But that’s Mad Men, I suppose." We second that! Tune in to AMC tonight at 10/9c to see all the well-styled drama unfold.
