J.Crew x CFDA: What You Should Actually Buy


This is what a $1,500 beach blanket looks like, in case you were curious. It's part of J.Crew's annual collaboration with CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists (knitwear line The Elder Statesman, in this case) and it's made out of cashmere. It's fancy. Fortunately, it's also by far the priciest thing in the whole capsule collection, which includes The Elder Statesman's striped tanks, Jennifer Meyer's geometric jewelry and Tabitha Simmons' floral stilettos.

Launching today, the collection's sure to sell the same way that last year's team-ups with Pamela Love, Altuzarra and Creatures of the Wind did: fast. Very fast. Because aside from the odd very aspirational item (hello, blanket), the pieces are wonderfully low-maintenance, like a comfy, punchy striped shirt that's instantly outfit-making, or lavender suede sandals that are gorgeous but flat, so you can actually run errands in them.
