We joined the line of 3 ladies and a baby at the J. Crew store in Rockefeller Center (stupidly assuming that this was the Flagship), excited to see what Joseph Altuzarra had come out with. Once the clock struck 10, we hurried inside only to receive disappointing news. The Flagship was at 5th Avenue and 17th street, and that was the only J. Crew carrying the line.
So we hurried to the train, and on to 17th street only to be a teeny drop more excited. Yes, the line was there, but the collection seemed like it was missing a few key pieces that Altuzarra is known and loved for. Where were the trenches and florals? Even though we love anything he touches, we really wish there was more to choose from.
Maybe we will catch your next sample sale instead Mr. Altuzarra :)
