We’ve heard nonstop chatter about CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Joseph Altuzarra collaborating with J.Crew on a 7-piece capsule collection, and *GASP* it’s finally here. The “Brigitte Bardot in Saint-Tropez”-inspired collection is filled with tons of summery nautical stripes and totally work-appropriate wear with a “hint of French sex appeal.” I’ll say! The line ranges between $85 and $345 and features tons of summery staples including sweaters, skirts, dresses and wedges. We’re totally loving the ’60s cat eye sunglasses and the comfy striped cotton dress ensemble in his first look. We could literally wear that every day and pray that our bouffant looked nearly as effortless as hers in the humid summer heat.
We’re kiinddd of obsessed with this fitted gingham dress because 1.) There’s a bow at the waist and 2.) This dress shape is SO universally flattering on every body type. Also, we could totally throw on some red lipstick and wedges and look like a million bucks in two seconds flat. You can’t go wrong with a sleek pencil skirt, and we particularly like that this one comes in denim for his last look. We have billions of shirts that we could tie at the waist to add a little flair to this conservative skirt, and, um, can we talk about those wedges? They come in apricot and cherry red suede (our fave) with an espadrille platform sole. To see the rest of the collection, check out JCrew.com, and be sure to tell us which look you like best!
