Rounding up the industry’s best editors for a presentation of their S/S 11 collection last week, J.Crew showcased an assortment inspired by art at its finest. Moved by the pastels of Cy Twombly as well as the paintings of Winslow Homer, Frank Muytjens and his fellow designers ventured to Prouts Neck, Maine for a scenic search of inspiration. Looking to the sea, spring’s collection found its voice in calming indigo paired with the clean performance of white and gray. With a nautical feel, J.Crew’s take on American classics came to fruition as an array of relaxed silhouettes, complemented by chambray shorts, patchwork pants, sun-baked cotton sweaters and a nylon toggle coat. Unconstructed blazers layered over work shirts and paired with floral print ties continued the company’s trademark of high-low styling.
Stay tuned for a preview of the women’s S/S 11 collection on Wednesday.
