WWD is reporting that Banana Republic will be launching a collection this fall inspired by the upcoming film, Anna Karenina, which isbased on the Leo Tolstoy novel of the same name.

Jacqueline Durran -- the film's costume designer -- was influenced by both the novel's 19th century Russian setting and '50s-era Dior to create costuming deemed "historical with a twist."

Both of those influences will be prevalent in Banana Republic's Anna Karenina-inspired collection, which Durran curated and styled for the retailer. The line will include clothing and accessories like faux-fur collars, hats and coats made of rich black and dove gray fabrics. Prices will range from $29.50 for jewelry to $325 for a coat.

The collection is set to launch in October, while Anna Karenina will be released in theaters on November 9th.
