Just got J.Crew summer 2013 catalogue in the post it seriously an impressive piece of work! Amazing clothes, simplistically styled layout and high fashion poses!
"We make a lot of beautiful clothes that can be worn in a very dressy way, but we choose not to show them like that. There always has to be an element that's A LITTLE OFF - something slightly undone or unbuttoned. HEAD-TO-TOE-FORMAL wouldn't feel like us, and this is how women dress these days. Plus, it's more fun" Tom Women Design of J.Crew
Pages were decorated with thought provoking quote that were so inspiring (maybe even too inspiring) that you stop looking at the clothes! Here a glimpse into J.Crew SS13 lookbook:
"WE LOVE colourblocking and pattern mixing. We think it's better to CLASH THAN TO MATCH. We like breaking the rules and appreciate a good surprise. We temper TOMBOY WITH HEELS. We pair old with new, matte with shine and HIGH WITH LOW. We don't believe there's just one way to wear an outfit,but we do have a few ideas on how to pull one together. For us, THE MAGIC IS IN THE MIX..." Jenna Lyons Creative Director of J.Crew
"Shoe should be a first thought, not an afterthought" J.Crew
"YOU'RE NEVER FULLY DRESSED without a statement necklace, an armful of bangles or some head-turning earrings. Inspired by rare vintage finds, we use the finest materials and colour-rich gems. Jewellery can be both a conversation starter and FINISHING TOUCH. Pile it on with abandon-the more the merrier" J.Crew
