"I always look to his work for inspiration," Muytjens said in an e-mail exchange. "The cloudy grays of the sky, the inky navy of the ocean -- they make for a very moody and masculine color palette. One of my favorites is a painting called 'Weatherbeaten,' and it perfectly sums up the J.Crew spring '11 men's line. Its rugged, hefty fabrics, ocean-faded colors and some of our garments look like they have been bleached out by the sun and the ocean, which makes them look like they've been around forever." [The Portland Press Herald]I do adore the Spring Collection for Men. Way to go Frank!
What are your thoughts on the inspiration for Spring 2011 Men's Collection? Are there any pieces that stand out for you as "must-haves"?
