Inspired by the success of The Official Preppy Handbook, Arthur Cinader founded J.Crew in 1983. Starting off with a brand catalog designed by Cinader himself, featuring editorial-like photography, the brand was praised for its Ivy League-inspired aesthetic. After opening their NYC flagship store just six years later, J.Crew’s iconic pencil skirts, cable-knit sweaters and fitted pants were cult classics. Today, the brand’s president Jenna Lyons is a style icon in her own right, bringing her signature mix of clean lines, contemporary detailing and a hint of the whimsical into the label’s collections. A perfect capsule wardrobe for men, women and children, J.Crew features innovative style solutions for any occasion.
