Hello J. Crew.

I'll always remember my first J. Crew piece. I was 13 and my dad had brought it home from a business trip. It was a pretty bright green tee shirt but of course J. Crew called it "mint".  I had never heard of the color "mint" before. However, after pouring through their catalogue, I was happily introduced to warm sienna, melon, and citrus-pink tanks and cardigans worn by pretty smiling men and woman lounging on their lakeside docks. I was in love.

I still to this day have a quite a fondness for the company and their bright creative colors.  I often post their sharply styled lookbooks in this blog. Today J. Crew opens up its doors in Canada, Toronto's Yorkdale Mall to be exact. So, I thought I would honor the special occasion by posting a few of my favorite shots from their most recent lookbooks, and perhaps provide a little incentive to pay them a visit.

Ps. The first sweater is "Spearmint".
