Amongst my friends, there has been some mixed feelings about J.Crew showing at Fashion Week. I for one, was naturally beyond thrilled about it. But, the argument can be made (mostly by the editor set,) that fashion shows are meant for buyers to preview the upcoming season’s collection – and since J.Crew only sells via their own stores, catalog, & site, it seems kind of pointless.
In my (ever so humble) opinion, Jenna Lyons is a genius and I’m glad they did! It gave the blogs and online sites a chance to spread the word about an amazing collection. In reviewing the coverage from the show, I’ve already got my eye on a few favorites. I’m thrilled that they are freshening things up, but staying true to a few of my favorite things – specifically… stripes & color blocking!!
Can we please just talk about how fantastic this new collection looks? What are your favorites?
