J. Crew Will Release Collaboration With Joseph Altuzarra

Cross your fingers — there’s a decent chance that, sometime in the next few weeks, J. Crew and CFDA/Vogue Fund Award winner Joseph Altuzarra (that’s him on the far right, pictured with J. Crew boss Jenna Lyons on the far left) will come forward with news of a collaboration. In fact, the designer might have gotten a little bit loose-lipped by discussing the collab at an event earlier this week. J. Crew has yet to make a formal announcement regarding the capsule collection, so I can’t imagine that they’re happy with Joseph’s decision to unceremoniously spill the beans. Regardless, Altuzarra will join the ranks of Prabal Gurung, jewelry designer Lulu Frost, and Manolo Blahnik, all of whom have collaborated with J. Crew in the past. As far as fast fashion collaborations go J. Crew is particularly high-end, so while the offerings will certainly be less pricy than the runway goods, they’re bound to cost a pretty penny. Still, I look forward to seeing the results and maybe picking up a couple of the pieces. [Racked]
