Last night we attended an intimate preview of the Banana Republic Mad Men spring capsule collection, which launched in-store today. The event, which was held at a stunning private residence in LA, was hosted by Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant and Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen and featured live models wearing the looks, caricature artists, whiskey and tons of famous faces.

While there were sadly no Jon Hamm (aka Don Draper) sightings, we did get star-struck by Kiernan Shipka, who plays Don's daughter Sally Draper on the show. We also ran into Vincent Kartheiser and Alison Brie (Mad Men's Pete and Trudy Campbell), Hart of Dixie star Jaime King, Shameless actress Amy Smart, model Angela Lindvall, Decades boutique's Cameron Silver (we're seeing him everywhere these days), blogger Rumi Neely and more.

On the limited-edition collection, which was heavy on the retro-tastic men's and women's offerings, we chatted with Bryant who noted that the range was inspired by the "country club scenes" of the series and that she loves collaborating with Kneen because they're both "fanatical about the '60s and men's tailoring." Flip through our party snaps, shop the collection here and tune into Mad Men's two-hour season premiere on March 25.
