What are your thoughts on the upcoming collection from J.Crew? Are you a fan of the capsule collection pieces?


  1. They are always interesting but I am usually priced out of stuff like this. If there is something at a reasonable price-point, I will be surprised. It is always fun to see it, though!

  2. I'm excited so see these collaborations, but like Cate, will almost certainly not want to pay the $$$

  3. To my surprise and delight I'm still lovin my C of W sweaters, so I'm interested in seeing these. Also interested to see what Serek Lam's new stuff for Target will look like - mid-September release.

    1. I thought the Target collaboration for fall was to be with 3.1 Phillip Lim? Derek Lam currently has a collaboration with Kohls. I'm always curious to see what is released in these collaborations, but with Target/Kohls have been disappointed in the execution and fabrication. With JC, I'm either priced out or it's not my style.

    2. I'll never be interested in a Target collaboration again after the Missoni fiasco. No clothing is worth that kind of crazy.

    3. Paula, It is 3.1 Phillip Lim for target this fall, at least according to the Lucky mag app. I'm curious to see the lookbook though I rarely like their collaboration designs enough to justify the shoddy quality. On the J.Crew end, I've never like any collab items enough to justify paying full price. I picked up the Altuzarra stripe dress and top for far less than half of the original price.

  4. Jennifer Meyer, the one in the button down is the daughter of a major Hollywood producer and Tobey Macquire's wife.
