Jenna Lyons and Frank Muytjens presented their fall 2010 collections for J.Crew last night in the penthouse of Milk Studios. Muytjens was up first, showing casual yet polished menswear looks like dark jeans (rolled to the ankle and worn with loafers — no socks), skinny blazers with thin ties, down vests and coats, and utilitarian workwear shirts in plaid or denim.
For Lyons, the season was a continuation of spring's military theme with a bit more "young girl goes to camp for the first time," she explained. Hence models' hay-strewn hair, canvas and leather riding boots, plaid ponchos, and Civil War-era military hats. J.Crew's popular touch of romanticism wasn't completely lost in the woods, with Lyons also offering sequin cardigans, jewel-encrusted knit gloves, glittering brooches, a frothy white tiered gown, and faux fur vests in blush and nude.
