J. Crew FW12- Jenna Lyons as her own Muse

I am absolutely in love with the latest J. Crew collection that was shown in New York a couple of days ago. It's incredible how Jenna Lyons continues to push the envelope at the high-street giant. The printed cropped tailored trousers are my favourite pieces. I love how they look with a cozy cashmere jumper and a pair of bright stilettos. All of which seem to have been inspired by Lyons' own style. It's impossible not to see similarities between what she has been wearing to the shows in NYC and the FW12 J. Crew line. Even the model casting and styling seems to have been inspired by her looks – i.e. geeky glass frames, statement shoes.
I absolutely die for Jenna Lyons' personal style. There seems to be a new generation of creative directors that are incredibly good at their job and whose personal style lives up to their collections' standards. Just like the Olsens or Victoria Beckham, Lyons experiments with her personal wardrobe and continues to buy other designers collections – Proenza Schouler, Céline, Altuzarra – despite her allegiance to J. Crew. She's got a super unique aesthetic that marries classic American sportswear with the more refined and fashion-forward cuts and trends of the Parisian catwalks. A marriage that reflects on her work season after season.

Are you a J. crew fan?
