For years, London fashionistas with a bit of a preppy fetish like me have been waiting and waiting... First for the international website, and now for the grand opening of, wait for it... J.Crew's first flagship in Europe. That's coming soon, don't worry! I hear that by November, Regent Street will have its own J.Crew.
Ok that's pretty exciting news already, but if you want a bit of a taster ahead of time, then hurry up: J.Crew has opened a pop-up store within Central Saint Martins, just behind King's Cross station, where you'll find a preview of the Autumn 2013 collections, both for grown-ups and children (love the CrewCuts collections for Little Monsieur!). You can obviously leave your contact to pre-order some of the new season items, but if you're looking for immediate satisfaction you'll find a selection of their gorgeous cashmere on site, with the oh-so-cool monogramming service.
I can't wait for the London flagship to arrive! In the meanwhile, I'll order here: J.Crew online and J.Crew at Net-A-Porter.
