As part of its responsible retail effort, Banana Republic has partnered with vintage online marketplace Thrilling, making it the e-commerce platform’s first-ever brand collaboration. Thrilling scours the country’s best vintage boutiques and secondhand stores, carefully curating a selection of one-of-a-kind items for online shoppers, and now the brand has partnered with Banana Republic to provide a vintage shopping experience.
Iconic and beloved Banana Republic pieces like classic utility items—including shirts, leather bomber jackets, chunky knits, tops and accessories—will be sourced from top vintage stores nationwide, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go back to the vintage stores. “In these uncertain times, and as members of this global community, it is more clear than ever that we are all connected and we have a shared responsibility to protect each other,” says Mary Alderete, the chief marketing officer at Banana Republic.
Banana Republic got its start by selling upcycled surplus products, so it’s only fitting that it would create the Better Republic initiative—a forward-thinking ideal that underscores the company’s sustainability goals and commitment to do better for people and the planet.
The vintage selects will be available for purchase at brxthrilling.com.
