J.Crew’s cashmere, cardigans and other classic items have landed in Toronto
J.Crew recently hosted its women’s (sorry, guys!) Canadian retail debut with a fete welcoming Jenna Lyons, the president and creative director of the American mainstay, who had girls crushing on her nautical striped top, green sequined pencil skirt and patent black pigalle Louboutins. Amongst the mini steamed hot dogs with whisky mustard, bite-sized morsels of lobster rolls and jars of lemonade were rows of button downs, cashmere cardigans and sharp trousers in an array of colours, that until now could only be ogled online or in the catalogues.
Despite the warm weather editors and the Hog Town style-set were picking up the super soft cashmere cable knit sweaters ($264) and the slim Minnie pants ($92) in “vibrant flame” (and a few editors who did their homework grabbed it in a berry shade that wasn’t even on the floor!). We can’t wait for the crisp fall weather so we can start sporting our green herringbone tweed blazer ($250) or neon coral orange toothpick cords ($104), but in the meantime we’ll trot around town in the pony hair leopard print pumps ($425) or stroll around in the red jelly, bowed ballerina flats ($68).
J.Crew is located at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, 3401 Dufferin Street, Toronto, ON. Shipping is also available to anywhere in Canada online at JCrew.com
