Its over a year now since Jenna Lyons revealed that J Crew was hunting for its first London store, and we still have to wait patiently until November before its Regent Street base opens. But if, like us, youre champing at the bit to get your hands on the all-American favourite then youll be excited to hear that its set to open a pop-up concept store in King's Cross this month.
The Cashmere Shop will be housed in the Western Transit Shed and will be open for just two days which means you have a very short window to order your favourite bits from the spring and autumn collections, as well as Italian cashmere sweaters. And if you like your pieces a little more personal then you can take advantage of the in-store monogramming service and one-of-a-kind hand jewelled collars.
The brand is also launching a scholarship and special design project with its King's Cross neighbour, Central Saint Martins. I am thrilled that we are working in partnership with Central Saint Martins College on this exciting project, says President and Executive Creative Director of J.Crew Group, Jenna Lyons. Design students are the lifeblood of our industry. Their creativity and enthusiasm is a constant inspiration for all of us at J.Crew.
The pop-up store will be open on Friday 24th May 10am 8pm, Saturday 25th May 10am 7pm.
