In their third year of continued support for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, J.Crew has teamed up with the fund’s winner and runners-up for three limited edition capsule collections. Since its 2003 inception, the fund has granted the top three candidates with business mentoring and financial awards in order to provide them with greater resources to expand their brands, not to mention the major exposure J.Crew allows them. Each designer’s collection lends the brand a distinct artistic taste, including Jennifer Meyer Maguire, the go-to jewelry designer of numerous celebrities, and her Chrysler Building-inspired jewels, Greg Chait’s (of The Elder Statesman) hip take on cashmere, and footwear designer Tabitha Simmons’s Liberty of London and Italian leather infused pumps and sandals. Take a peek (below) at what the collections have in store!
