Banana Republic has jumped on the trend of casting “real people” in ad campaigns — specifically, real couples. And while it’s not an entirely new idea, this is one campaign we can get behind, namely because it stars interior design guru Nate Berkus and his fiancé, former Rachel Zoe employee Jeremiah Brent (also an interior designer).
Brent stole our hearts as the attractive-yet-approachable-and-sweet interior designer that could in the fourth season of now-defunct Bravo series “The Rachel Zoe Project”. And now he’s back in the spotlight as one half of the sweetest campaign couple ever. Thank you, Banana Republic.
The campaign stars other real-life duos and families: Argentinian model and Tulum hotelier Nicolas Malleville and his family, Nashville natives and longtime sweethearts Cory Bond and Bekah Jenkins, and up-and-coming European models Sara Blomqvist and Jeremy Young. And good for them. But ‘Miah and Nate are our favorites.
BR’s California Collection of effortless, easy separates. What a chic, laid-back pair they make. Here’s hoping a reality show is in their future.
I am loving how fashion companies are using more gays on their campaigns! I want a boyfriend like Nate Berkus!
