Nate Berkus And Fiancé Jeremiah Brent Are Banana Republic’s New Golden Boys

tumblr_n1cy2i38qH1qanm80o2_1280Out interior designer Nate Berkus and his fiancé Jeremiah Brent are among a handful of real-life couples appearing in the new Banana Republic ad campaign, which the company hopes will “reflect our world and how we live in a true, genuine way.”

According to The Times, Berkus and Brent are currently the only same-sex couple to appear amid the ad pages of major publications including InStyle and Rolling Stone.

“Showcasing true relationships can resonate more deeply,” said Catherine Sadler, global chief marketing officer for Banana Republic. The whole campaign is being hailed as a “change in theme,” even though BR’s parent company, Gap Inc., essentially ran the exact same ad campaign with different couples two years ago.

But that’s alright—there are tons of new companies jumping on the pink dollar bandwagon, so we’ll welcome Banana Republic nonetheless.

Looking good, boys!

      Perfection.

      I love a clean cut looking white boy.

      They look like they smell good too. The few white guys I have been around always smelled like wet dog.

      Yes come for me……lol

      So he basically pulled a few strings to get his boy toy some exposer. Although I much rather see this “old enough be your father” couple than the other “old enough to be you GRANDfather-” i mean agent- couple.

      @EdWoody: I can see that being them.

      He’s very bottom heavy. Probably a major chub back in the day- and will be as he ages.

      great to see GAP/BR again including sam sex couples in their ads…i’ve always admired Nate Berkus…i wish them much happiness

      its always interesting to see the comments of self haters projecting their negativity on every openly gay person or subject that queerty puts up posts about

      I love them both as a couple. They are both intelligent, elegant and sophisticated and are very comfortable in their own skin. When that terrible show “The A-List” was out a few years ago I expected couples like Nate and Jeremiah to be cast but instead we got all those ridiculous clowns hunting a circus types that were supposed to represent the best of us. I’m very glad Banana Republic chose them. They are a better representation of gay people I think.

      Banana Republic is including a gay couple in their ad campaign for the same reason that every company does everything. They smell money. They’d use pictures of Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer and Hitler if they thought it would increase profits.
