J.Crew never fail to amaze me. The label have this ability to tell a story through the way they style and shoot their lookbooks. You get a strong sense of the person wearing the clothes and the clothes become an extension of who they are. I have a soft spot for J.Crew’s kids shoots including their latest Spring/Summer 2014 collection. There’s always the right amount … Continue reading KIDS
