J.Crew has returned to Pinterest, today releasing images from its upcoming November Style Guide on the sharing platform. The lookbook, which features women's, men's and children's clothing, was shot in the Cotswolds, England. And while the men's photos reflect that rugged, cold landscape, the women's—shot on stark white and black backgrounds—could have honestly been photographed anywhere.
The story for fall at J.Crew is evidently sporty, and its stylists have mixed casual pieces like a quilted satin sweatshirt, wool sweatpants, New Balance sneakers, snap-back caps and puffy vests and coats with more dressed-up items such as starched white button-downs, heels and blazers. It's a stripped-down line, considerably less "ugly" and spangled than the brand's previous offerings.
J.Crew has tagged each photo with pre-order info to take advantage of Pinterest's relentless sharing. The pieces showcased won't hit stores and the web until October 23rd, but they'll take your order now at 800-261-7422 or by emailing email@example.com.
