J.Crew's Fall Collection Is Full Of Color Inspiration And Foremen

J.Crew's fall '11 womenswear , from head designer Marissa Webb, opened our eyes real wide with a whole host of tailored looks in a bright palette riffing on The Great Gatsby that's sure to serve as a pick-me-up for any fall day. From flares to ankle grazers, we are loving all the deep purple and pink pants that are mixed with jewel- and neutral-toned tops and sweater. Mid-length to long flowing skirts and a maxi sequined dress in a cranberry color that is just to-die-for round out this collection of luxe-looking items that will be staples in every girl's wardrobe. Even the most notorious lady in black won't be able to resist these bold hues! For men, color took a back seat—head designer Frank Muytjens and his team mined the Lewis Hine vibe. Indeed, it's not hard to picture Hine's foremen, mechanics, and riveters getting a sartorial upgrade and going Ivy or taking a hipster, hunter-y trip to the Brooklyn boardroom. If this gal and guy got together, it would be the best mismatch ever.
