Wei wei wei?
La MariniÃ¨re, Breton, Boat, Sailor or simply just stripy, call it whatever you want but I just can’t get enough of them. From what I can remember right now, I have about 6 sailor (as I like to call them) tops and all of them slightly different from each other. Some are straight-up short-sleeve tshirts, a few three quarter sleeves and one long sleeve. Of all my stripy tops, this Saint James GalathÃ©e super soft three-quarter sleeve tee is my new favourite. I recently picked it up at J.Crew and it’s been one of the best classic additions to my wardrobe. Saint James has been making the finest knits in France since 1850, but they’re most famous for their sailor stripes. I’m so happy to join the Saint James fan club along with some style icons you may have heard of like Andy Warhol, Picasso and even Coco Chanel.
As part of their global expansion, J.Crew has launched an online feature called “Hello, World!“ (SUCH a cute name) and has enlisted the super-blogging power-couple Scott Schuman and Garance DorÃ© to travel the world from Madrid to Hong Kong to capture each city’s style icons showing how they make J.Crew their own. Another major part of Hello, World is the chance for J.Crew admirers outside of the US to become a J.Crew Insider. Now that the site has opened up to the wurrrld, Insiders will receive some goodies such as free shipping as well as special access to J.Crew’s team of international personal shoppers! So hurrrrrry! I’ve signed up already, have YOU?!
In another quick news about J.Crew, have you guys heard that they’ve teamed up with Lane Crawford for a special project that will make J.Crew clothes available in Asia-Pacific starting this October?! I can’t wait to see the new Fall/Winter collection that will be available in LC IFC and also online at www.lanecrawford.com.
Thanks so much to J.Crew for everything!!
