Just ahead of summer, J. Crew has released a capsule collection collaboration with SZ Blockprins designer Sarah Zellweger. The collection of lightweight tunics and caftans carry Zellweger’s trademark handmade prints.
Following the departure of Jenna Lyons, J.Crew announced four executive appointments that aim to leverage the positive momentum of its Madewell brand, and also that it would be cutting 250 positions at its headquarters.
The end of an era: Jenna Lyons is stepping down as executive creative director and president of the struggling retailer. No successor will be named but former Madewell CD Somsack Sikhounmuong will take over design.
