Were looking at spaces on Regent Street. And I wouldnt mind being in Covent Garden for a smaller store, Jenna Lyons, the brands creative director and style compass, told the Telegraph. It wont be just one storewere not gonna be stingy.
Ever since British shoppers received their first taste of J.Crews tailored, colour-rich offering via Net-a-porter in 2010, they (and we) have wished for the retailer to cross the pond and set up shop locally.
We have a huge British following alreadyour New York stores get a lot of customers, and what we do is not very well represented in the British market, Lyons continued. There are very classic clothes, but theyre high end. And women especially, there isnt that classic tailoring but with a twist, and also colour, which we do. So from what Ive been told we might be hopefully filling a niche.
In other smile-making J.Crew news, Fashionista reported that the retailers latest collaboration comes from a figure no less grand than Manolo Blahnik. Blahnik created a line of shoes inspired by his classic BB pumps in exclusive J.Crew colours and prints.
