J.Crew Collection hits Bloor St.


The first J.Crew Collection store in Canada has hit Bloor St. and, no surprise, it is lovely. Beyond lovely. From the art collection (the largest of any J.Crew store in Canada), to the steel pipe racks, to – obv – the clothes; I see this becoming a dangerously regular sartorial hit. So what differentiates the Collection store from the others? It has the most extensive offering of Collection pieces which tend to be more fashion-y & bling-y. Every mannequin & vignette is worth paying attention to, the styling, as always, is super tight – the genius that is Jenna Lyons and J.Crew.
