Bella Swan’s BD2 ‘Black’ Jacket with Gold Buttons

After being in complete shock from the final installment of the Twilight Saga, it was time to get down to business and find some Breaking Dawn part 2 wardrobe! I had noticed Bella in specific had so many jackets this film, no doubt thanks to Alice Cullen . One jacket in specific people had been trying to spot prior to the release of the film was a black jacket with golden studded buttons seen here:

My good friend Vee, creator and moderator of IBC’s sister blog, Go Ask Alice Cullen, had traveled here to the US to visit and see the movie with me! of course she wanted to hit up all the malls in the area (what Alice cosplayer wouldn’t?). We walked by H&M, J. Crew, and just about any other store you could think of that has had clothes featured in the saga. We had nearly walked passed Banana Republic when she decided she wanted t go in. I followed, spacing out, knowing anything I saw would be out of my price range for the month, and then locked my eyes on a jacket on the end of a sale rack….. This jacket –

This jacket is the Banana Republic Belted Pocket coat. It retailing in the store for $130.00, I was able to get it for $60.00 on the clearance rack, and the SKU number is 416134-00-1

Vee and I were able to match up all the seams and buttons to those on Bella’s coat, even the buckles on the collar. The only thing I’m still a bit stumped about is the color.

The color of this jacket is technically a navy blue though it could pass as a dark charcoal. the collar on the inside is made of a corduroy which would explain the contrast of the two “blacks” on Bella’s jacket, the actual coat looking black and the collar looking an even darker black. On this coat, it is a maroon color.

A couple of different theories I have:

– this is the jacket, just shot in a dark lighting

– this is the jacket but they dyed the collar black because the maroon was too distracting and eye-catching for the scene (They have altered clothing in the past)

– the navy jacket with the maroon collar this years jacket, and Kristen Stewart’s jacket was actually last years jacket. I was told, last year they had this jacket in black, this year they did not. I tried finding picture of it i black, but unfortunately I could not find the exact jacket in black. I did however find black jackets made by Banana Republic similar to the make of this one, but instead of the gold buttons, they were silver. I wonder if last years buttons were silver on this coat as well.

Although the colors are questionable, I believe this is the same make and brand as the jacket Bella is wearing in Breaking Dawn part two. I will however, keep an opened mind to anyone who thinks they have spotted the jacket with another brand!

Let me know what you all think!

UPDATE:

Bella wears the 2010 version in ‘Oiled Cotton”

  1. I love it! I think it is perfect. I wish I had a Banana Republic near me…the one online is petite and my tall self won’t fit into a petite. Great find!

  2. Great find! I love this. I checked online and right now it is only in petite sizes…and the full $130. My 5’10 self won’t fit into petite. Haha, unless I want 3/4 length sleeves. But seriously, great find!

  10. I ordered this by telephone from a store and i wanted it badly enough to buy it in a small when i am usually a medium because i swim and have broader shoulders as well as being 5″10 and the small fits unusually perfect! The sleeves are long enough for my monkey arms and it all fits lovely, in fact it is a little too big around the waist and i am thinking of having it tailored.

    Hi, I am a Twilight fan and stumbled across your website and just wanted to say thank you! I love the fashion from the movies, particularly in Breaking Dawn 1 and 2. I don’t dress for character, just love the pieces in every day life. I just bought the Banana Republic jacket you mentioned and I’m so excited about it! My next pursuit is the L’agence charcoal jacket Bella wears. I can’t find it anywhere, any tips? Thanks!!!
