Paris – A day with J Crew

J Crew flowers

Where? Paris, France.

Exactly? The beautiful J Crew apartment overlooking the Arc de Triomphe on Avenue des Champs-Elysees. Followed by a little shopping trip and a few galleries in Le Marais.

Why? I was invited to spend a wonderful day in Paris with J Crew to view the new Spring Summer 15 fashion collection.

When? November 2014.

J Crew ss15I was invited to Paris for the day for a private preview the new Spring Summer 15 J Crew range (due to hit stores in Feb 2015) at the stunning Maison J Crew pop-up apartment.  The range was exhibited on mannequins throughout the decadent space, flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows, overlooking a spectacular view of the Arc de Triomphe. The new season collection is the epitome of Parisian chic, think wardrobe staples with a J Crew style injection. Perfect pencil skirts and utility shift dresses were adorned with jewels and embellishment. Wardrobe classics like a crisp white shirt were styled casually with sleeves rolled up. Breton stripe T-shirts given the cropped treatment and worn with piped-edge tracksuit tops. It was the perfect blend of wearable, wardrobe essentials given an edgy, luxe-sportswear twist.
