J.Crew follow up their recent collaboration with Warehouse denim, with a look stateside to Nashville’s Imogene + Willie. Having previous been a part of the finishing factory which created washes for the likes of Levis and RRL, Imogene + Willie was formed after the closure of the factory. The collaboration includes 2 pairs of jeans and 2 bags.
” J. Crew will carry a slim straight-leg model, which is “based on a jean from the Forties,” he said, in either a dark rinse with mild abrasion for $375 or a light wash with more abrasion for $425. There will be a slimmed-down version of a vintage U.S. Mail bag for $650 and a leather tote for $800. Hangtags have been printed from old letter presses, and the sizes will be individually hand-stamped, according to Matt Eddmenson. There will also be a vintage T-shirt and sweatshirt for women.”
Stay tuned for the release at J.Crew stores late August.
