As youve probably gathered by now the much discussed J Crew store opens on Regent Street tomorrow, hot on the heels of its mens store which opened on Lambs Conduit Street last month. We went down yesterday for a first look at the store weve picked out the pieces we cant wait to buy here and to see the installations created especially by set designer Shona Heath. And, most excitingly, we got to meet Jenna Lyons, the brands President and Creative Director whose effortlessly cool style is talked about almost as much as the pieces shes responsible for overseeing. This is what we talked about.
We also love and appreciate everyones own sense of style. I hate using the phrase something for everyone because that can sound really ubiquitous and uninteresting, but I know weve hit on something amazing when I find I want to buy it, my mum wants to buy it and the 22 year old girl from the office wants to buy it.
Do you mind that your own style is talked about as much as J Crew?
Im flattered. I think when you do something for as long as I have it becomes a part of you whether you intend it to or not. If they like it and they associate it with me thats great and if they dont like it and they associate it with me I feel bad!
