After mining the hit TV series “Mad Men” for a series of successful collections, Banana Republic is looking to another cinematic release for holiday inspiration: the upcoming film adaptation of “Anna Karenina,” starring Keira Knightley.

The capsule collection was styled and curated by the movie’s costume designer, Jacqueline Durran, who also worked on period movies like “Sense and Sensibility” and “Vera Drake”. As one would imagine, the collection is strongly inspired by the high society and romantic looks of the 19th century—from lace-detailed dresses to chic black sheath dresses. Some of the pieces feel remarkably current, like a tailored black cape jacket and a trim pencil skirt with a fluted hem. And, of course, there are the requisite oversize fur hats—it really wouldn’t be a Russian drama without those, right?

The Anna Karenina collection will be available in store and online October 30th—just in time for holiday party shopping and the movie’s big premiere in November. Here, get a first look at all the looks from the collection, and pick which outfit you’ll be wearing to channel the lovely Ms. Knightley!
