This week J.Crew arrived in London. There was a wonderful ‘Cocktails and Cashmere’ event on Wednesday evening, to celebrate their pop-up store in King’s Cross, and yesterday the uber-cool American brand hosted a lunch for UK blogger’s and presented their Autumn/Winter 2013 collection to press. So you might expect me to be all J.Crew-ed out, but I’m not. I could happily talk about J.Crew all day if I was given the chance, and my latest obsession is the Tabitha Simmons CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund collection.
Tabitha Simmons was a runner-up at this year’s CFDA awards, and has created a limited-edition collection for J.Crew. (The Elder Statesmen and Jennifer Meyer have also collaborated with the brand as part of the CFDA collection). I’m a big fan of Tabitha’s footwear designs, so naturally I’ve gone ga-ga for the entire Tabitha Simmons for J.Crew collection.
The collection is currently available to pre-order online at JCrew.com, so act fast if you want a piece of the action! My favourite designs are the floral Mary Janes [above]. They’re the perfect summer shoe!
Sadly J.Crew’s London pop-up shop is only open today and tomorrow (find the address HERE), but the Regent Street flagship store will be opening its doors in a few months’ time. Obviously I’ll keep you updated on the launch date…
