Sad Day for J.Crew
A while back, around the time of New York Fashion Week in the Fall, I posted about the upcoming collaboration between J.Crew and Manolo Blahnik. Today, while doing my weekend catch up on Refinery29, I read that the collection will never see the light of day (outside of the J.Crew NYFW show). Although at the time of the collection's original debut, Manolo Blahnik himself claimed he had no knowledge of it, there still seemed to be nothing getting in the way of the collection's arrival in J.Crew stores (it was supposed to make an appearance in about a dozen stores across the country, if I remember correctly). Jenna Lyons said that the collaboration's fizzle was due to wholesale restraints on the part of Manolo Blahnik. Both companies released statements saying that there was no ill will between the two brands, but that they hope to collaborate in the future. For all our sakes, let's hope that this is true.
