J.Crew went all out and invited quite a few fashion reporters & bloggers (except for me! I am sure my invite got lost in the mail with those earrings or something... ;) ) to partake in their Spring 2010 preview fashion event. We got to see some previews in Friday's "Sneak Peek for J.Crew Men's Collection in 2010" post and Thursday's "Sneak Peek for J.Crew Women's Collection in 2010" post
Well, the following are some more articles covering the event:

J.Crew Spring Presentation: Opposites Attract
October 23, 2009
In an upbeat presentation, J.Crew's Jenna Lyons started with a Hockney-inspired palette of neutrals with pops of neons. She applied this to looks rooted in counterpoint: whimsically ruffled and otherwise embellished pieces juxtaposed with boyish military-inspired outerwear. For the most part, the contradiction worked like a charm, even if one or two looks felt overstyled.
Frank Muytjens' men's lineup offered classic pieces in unexpected combinations. A dinner jacket with satin lapels, for example, was shown with distressed jeans, and an oilcloth fireman's jacket was paired with white jeans and a skinny tie. "We're mixing dressy with utilitarian," said Muytjens, J.Crew's vice president of men's design. "The inspirations are familiar but in a different context."
On the financial front, J.Crew said Thursday its third-quarter profits would rise to 54 cents to 59 cents a diluted share, ahead of the 30 cents to 33 cents previously projected. The update drove J.Crew's stock up 15.2 percent to $43.49 Thursday.
