    J.Crew Uses “Timeless” Supermodels to Silence Haters

    “This is what timeless looks like,” reads the blog post announcing their fall catalog, starring a string of familiar faces.  With the help of IMG—which appears to be taking over the world—the brand cast Lauren Hutton, Erin Wasson, Liya Kebede, Amber Valetta, Joan Smalls, Andreea Diaconu, and Carolyn Murphy in their October style guide. Together, the women have appeared more than 50 times over the past 20 years, which means the most diehard J.Crew fans, those dreaming of pleat-front khakis and pastel polo shirts, should be comforted by their presence.

    Jenna Lyons Is Not J.Crew’s Problem

    J.Crew’s President and Creative Director, Jenna Lyons, at New York Fashion Week.  Someone at the New York Post really has it out for Jenna Lyons. In December, the newspaper took J.Crew’s President and Creative Director to task for an active social life. A source told Page Six, “J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler is tired of Jenna Lyons being out on the circuit and not paying attention to business.” Today, they write that shoppers blame Lyons for the “out of touch” brand and its “out-there accessories,” and that loyal customers long for the days of pleated khakis and cotton polo shirts. The paper points out that J.Crew went from profits of over $35 million to losses in the $600 million range in just a year—and then blames it on Lyons.
