Did you catch CNBC's special J. Crew & The Man Who Dressed America last night?I am not much of a news person so I was grateful someone on Tumblr posted about it so I could catch it at 10pm. Here is the preview if you missed out.
It was a great insight to one of my favorite companies and I loved hearing about CEO Millard "Mickey" Drexler's life in retail and his control over J.Crew. He really has done a lot for the brand over the past few years.
Some of my favorite things of the interview and inside look were the inclusion of the J.Crew catalog/style guide. I love looking through the pages when mine comes in the mail and it was interesting to see how they create the looks and vote on the cover as if it were Vogue and The September Issue (and yes, Anna Wintour made an appearance in the special too!) Here is a video discussing the creation of the J.Crew catalog from the special.
I really hope they re-air the special sometime soon since I thought it was rather interesting and not that widely marketed. I only saw the post about it during a commercial break on So You Think You Can Dance tonight. Who is your favorite dancer so far?
Anyhow, since we are talking about J.Crew I thought I would include some of my current wish-list items from the website.
