Banana Republic

The Partnership

Legacy Gap brand, Banana Republic, is best known for its elevated design and professional wardrobe staples. With a relationship that goes back two decades, the brand has turned to Chipman Design Architecture multiple times over the last few years to rethink their prototype and create the architectural template for future release.

The Highlights

With a focus on creating a more comfortable shopping experience across their stores, CDA worked hand in hand with the corporate team to develop a new design that incorporated soft seating and a harmonious and neutral backdrop paired with artisanal textures. Leveraging a soft palette of warm taupes and pops of mustard, accented by mixed metals of forged iron and matte copper, created an inviting sense of warmth while staying true to the brand’s relaxed, professional persona.
