Presented by president Jenna Lyons and her new head of women’s design, Marissa Webb, the new J.Crew S/S 11 Women’s collection was unveiled last Thursday at Milk Studios in New York. A week prior to the reveal, Webb had hinted at what we’d be in store for, describing the Spring looks as “Color. New Silhouettes. New Proportions.” A pastel Easter egg color palette did indeed prove to be a defining characteristic of the collection, as did the return of Lyons’ signature quirky mix-and-match styling. Daytime items were partnered with sequin-covered evening styles, and menswear influences were abundantly present among the femme pink silks and full skirts. Though eclectic, the looks were not overdone. For the most part, the ensembles were monochromatic, void of busy prints, and including almost no jewelry. True to the brand’s aesthetic, each outfit yielded simple, wearable items; the J.Crew customer will be pleased.
