It's no secret that I'm a big fan of J.Crew…the colors, the patterns, the styling, and the diversity shown in the models…it's all SO good. They've done amazing things in the last few years, and I continue to love the brand more and more as they evolved. Now that they worldwide, they recently asked Garance Doré and Scott Schuman to photograph various stylin' people around the world, and I love these little films that document the series. You can see more right here at J.Crew's Hello World series… — Joy
Oh, I love you, J. Crew. They really go beyond. Watched them all and liked the second one the best, but really, they all rock.
I was so excited to see an Asian male model in the latest catalogue. J.Crew is really stepping it up!
These are awesome! Thanks for sharing!!
Loving these little snippets! So amazing to watch and stylishly captured. Since I will be off to Hong Kong as soon as I complete my final 2012 wedding, this has got me excited for my next trip to my second home too!
*These* models are diverse, sure. But the first thing I think of when I think of J.Crew’s models is not “diversity” – sadly, J.Crew’s models are very pretty, very prep, and very white with a few token models of color thrown in here and there.
I was appalled during the recent early spring 2012 catalogs to see models so pale they looked whited out, so much so they looked like they were constantly being overexposed with a camera flash. Take those bright-white models and put a bold lipstick on ’em, and that’s their most popular look that’s front-and-center in catalogs and also on their webpages.
Don’t get me wrong – I love their clothes. But as a company, I feel they can definitely do better when it comes to diversity.
