J.Crew Romper TO DIE.
From J.Crew’s lookbook for Spring 2011.
so glad rompers are still around xoxo
j.crew knows what i like
I was delighted to have run into Jenna Lyons on her way to the Derek Lam show at New York Fashion Week. I love what she has done for J.Crew as Creative Director. She’s maintained the truest form of J.Crew’s preppy look, but succeeded on transforming it into something fresh via a simple formula: presentation. Staple J.Crew-esque items such as khakis, polos and a blazer will always remain part of the collection, but this time it’s about looking at those items in a completely different light. If you walk into J.Crew you’ll see what I mean. When I say presentation has been a key variable in transforming the J.Crew brand, I mean it literally. You no longer see typical pairings like cargo pants, a polo shirt and a blazer together. You see cargo pants with sexy heels and a sequin top. Just look at what Jenna is wearing in the photo i’ve taken to illustrate my point. She mixes and matches pieces together. I think what Jenna has done for J.Crew is very smart, and very human centred. She’s enabled people’s sense of individualism to emerge. I always preach that style is self expression. J.Crew with Jenna at the helm has it down pat. It’s about taking those pieces and making it your own, because let’s face it, not everyone is into looking like they belong to a yacht or country club. It’s J.Crew for everyone. Including me. And including Michelle Obama.
