J.Crew is all about an inspiring mix of timeless designs crafted from some of the finest fabrics around the globe. Now that we are shipping worldwide, we can’t wait to see how our seriously stylish new friends are wearing their favorite pieces. So we sent photographers Garance Doré and Scott Schuman on an eight-city tour to gather the evidence proving that amazing style, one-of-a-kind color and impeccable quality know no time zone!

things as well.”
