Has anyone noticed all the hot air balloons around lately? No, I obviously don't mean in the actual sky--hot air balloon congestion just sounds dangerous. I'm talking about fashion!

And the latest label to go bananas for balloons?

Why, it's none other than J.Crew, hawking its spanking new spring collection in a shop-able story called "Up, Up, and Away!"

Is it safe to assume the next Chanel show will involve models descending from the sky?
