We travelled down to the Soho for the J.Crew presentation on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the city. As we entered the space, it was filled with lots of natural light streaming in from the floor to ceiling windows. The large room was buzzing with editors, bloggers and celebrities, the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and Derek Blasberg.
The invitation said ‘Spring-Ish’
The collection featured the Spring collection, along with pieces that will be available immediately in store.
‘For our show, we featured friends of the brand, members of the team and all people we admire. They range in age from 13 to 70, with style from classic to eclectic. They’re students and parents, professionals, artists, teachers and activists. Each one has their own unique style.’- Jenna Lyons, Creative Director.Model Citizens
Mari, who founded the nonprofit Stand for Education, which provides access to women and children in South Sudan, wore a ruffle skirt in glazed honey – we saw Mari in the beautiful Obakki runway show Walk for Water earlier this Spring.

‘The inspiration: Claire McCardell wrappings; the color spectrums of Cy Twombly paintings; wild, dreamy Piet Oudolf gardens. Stripes re-invented, femininity through ruffles and floaty dotted tulle, contrasted with moments of tuxedo dressing, chinos and tees with an artistic take- all in a tight color edit of blues, pinks and khakis. All the things we love and have always loved.’ – Somsack Sikhounmuong, women’s designer
The satin heels were so darling, and need to be in my closet next Spring!
Whoopi Goldberg walked in right behind us, along with actress Cynthia Erivo from Broadway’s The Colour Purple. I’m a big fan of The Whoop, so it was a fun experience to see her view the collection, and see what shoes she was wearing! (Custom Birkenstocks)
