WWD is reporting that, come May, J. Crew's going global—but not by opening brick-and-mortar stores or shipping abroad via jcrew.com. No, the company's decided to branch out (beyond North America and Japan, where J. Crew merch is currently available) to the rest of the world via Net-a-Porter—so prepsters in other countries can ogle some of Michelle, Sasha, and Malia's favorite frocks right alongside wares by Rick Owens, Jason Wu, and Balmain.
