If someone had told me five years ago that J Crew would be showing a full-blown, high-fashion collection at New York Fashion Week, I would not have believed it, but the J.Crew Spring 2012 collection proved that the preppy clothing company has everything it takes to succeed in the competitive and cut-throat world of fashion.
Jenna Lyons, creative director of J Crew and apparently one of the best dressed women in the world (nay, scratch the "apparently." I've seen photos and it's true) and the head of women's design at the company, Marissa Webb, have developed a very specific formula for success at the label and it is obviously working for them.
Pieces that stood out at the J Crew Spring 2012 show were a calf-length, striped multi-colored sequin skirt and of course, J Crew's infamous slouchy cashmere sweaters.
Perfect for anyone who favors a classic, preppy look in a bright, bold palette, the J Crew Spring 2012 collection is sure to show up on the backs of fashion editors everywhere throughout the upcoming season.
