One of the reasons why I love this show so much is because of the fashion. The costume designer for the show, Janie Bryant, has really taken the fashion to a point where it no longer looks like costume on the small screen. Unfortunately, most of us dress pretty casually (and forget that we do), so I guess we're just waiting for a revival. Actually, they have a casting call in collaboration with Banana Republic going on right now. I might just enter it, but the chances of an overweight average-looking Asian like me making it are very slim. Then again, it doesn't hurt to try.
In Spring 2009, CB2 came out with a sofa called the "Draper." They took advantage of the sensation and ran with it. Unfortunately, this striped one did not sell well (not surprisingly), and was discontinued mid-season. However, you've got to admit this ad is quite hilarious.
Draper Sofa $799.00Good thing they still have the Draper sofa because it's beautiful. The lines are simple with eco-friendly construction (certified sustainable kiln-dried hardwood frame, soy-based polyfoam, removable solid wood legs). I might just get for myself and with my discount, I can get it for about $500+ or $300+ as a floor sample. Oh, and you know Don Draper would totally sit on it any day (it's kind of my sales pitch). I've had a lot of men (straight men love Don Draper) and psychiatrists buy it and let's just say, they've got good taste.
