We’ve already seen and swooned over Joseph Altuzarra’s gingham-filled, Brigitte Bardot-inspired collection for J. Crew, in stores now, but the retailer’s other two CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund collaborations have remained a bit of a mystery (Vogue gave us a little tease), until now.
CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runners-up Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Chris Peters designed smaller 3-piece collections, and J. Crew has finally given us a proper look at them through mini editorial stories on their website.
Pamela Love, who made her first official foray into non-jewelry design for the collab, went with a pair of distressed skinny jeans, a matching denim jacket adorned with brassy baubles (including one that looks a little like the Mockingjay pin?) and plaid accents under the collar, and a tan leather belt with gold rivets. Even though the collection is atypical for the jewelry designer, it’s somehow still very Pamela Love.
Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Chris Peters, on the other hand, didn’t really stray from their signature offbeat look, citing “’60s psychedelia and rebellious youth culture” as their inspiration. The result is a colorblocked cashmere twinset, a sweet-yet-tough sundress with a liberty floral print and a pair of bright multi-colored oxfords dubbed the “psychedelic oxford.”
Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind’s collections won’t hit stores or online until May 17 and June 14, respectively, but you can call up J. Crew and place a pre-order if you’re desperate to get your hands on their goods. For now, click through to see both collections and head over to J. Crew for more.
