Banana Republic Catalog No. 30, Holiday 1986

Banana Republic Catalog #30 Holiday Update 1986 Chester Arnold

Possibly the best of the Christmas covers, this amazing illustration by renowned Bay Area painter Chester Arnold captures the spirit of BR adventure and the joy of Christmas giving. A sleigh loaded with the colorful new BR gift boxes has just departed the BR North Pole Expedition camp and Santa has traded in his red and white snow suit and cap for a much more sensible BR wardrobe for high altitude flying.

Merry Christmas, Abandonistas!
