Joe Wright's anticipated rendition of Anna Karenina will be released in America on November 16, but those who enjoy historical films for their costumes and set designs more than their plots needn't wait to get in on the 19th-century glam.

Banana Republic's Tolstoy-inspired line will be available in stores on October 30, complete with faux fur, feathers and lace.

The store collaborated with Jacqueline Durran, the designer who outfitted Keira Knightly and Jude Law for the flick. Durran's previous work on the set of Atonement (also starring Knightly) earned her an Academy Award nomination in 2007.

While the movie's trailer features a disgruntled Keira Knightley in an embellished oxblood gown, Banana Republic's ready-to-wear outfits mostly feature black, black and more black.

Durran told InStyle, "Small touches such as lace and fur embellishments portray a classic sense of luxury without requiring a full look that may feel ‘costumey.’ Even if incorporating vintage pieces, you shouldn’t don a full 19th-century look. Instead, mix and match with more modern pieces to keep it current."

The 76-piece set features items for both men and women, ranging from $29.50 jewelry to a $500.00 blazer. Check out some of the looks below, and let us know what you think in the comments!:
