Well, technically, his start date is August 20, when he will assume an advisory role created specifically for him by "Banana Republic in partnership with its Executive Vice President of Design and Creative Director, Simon Kneen, beginning with the Fall 2013 collection," according to a press release. What a shame that Narciso missed out on contributing to the brand's Anna Karenina–inspired line.
