Is that cheering we hear? Milly and Banana Republic have cooked up something special for spring.

The Banana Republic Milly Collection for men and women will be in stores and online in late May. Designed by Michelle Smith, Milly is known for its beautiful prints, colors and fabrics. Smith is a stickler for detail, too, which has helped the brand gain a loyal following since 2001.

The Banana Republic collection is a limited-edition capsule inspired by the Hamptons.  This will be Smith’s first collection for men.

The collection of more than 60 women’s and men’s apparel and accessories features original designs that incorporate a new print created exclusively for the capsule as well as six updagted Milly prints.

Pieces sure to grab attention range from maxi dresses, mini-skirts and shorts to poolside totes and scarves. The menswear collection features a lineup of striped and patterned separates, including bright polos, woven tees and shorts. Women’s apparel ranges in price from $45 to $175; men’s from $24.50 to $64.50. Jewelry and accessory pieces range from $39.50 to $130.
