Yesterday, the designers behind J.Crew’s little sister, Madewell, presented their F/W 11 collection to editors and bloggers. Attendees got into the mood with the help of a room resembling a mid-century office (a wall of sticky notes, along with vintage globes, industrial furniture and old metal desk supplies); where the clothes and accessories were described as “Madewell goes to work” and “chic tomboy” by Kin Ying Lee, the brand’s head of design. With a focus was on menswear-inspired trousers, blazers and cardigans styled with suspenders and brogues, the company’s wonderfully rugged aesthetic continues for another season. A blanket wool poncho and a Penfield jacket, wool cargo pants, sweatshirt knits and shirtdresses were shown with dip-dyed stripe T-shirts by Le Minor of Montauk and even Doc Martens.
