J.Crew has had more than its fair share of the limelight over the past few years – what with a first lady who clearly loves the clothes, and dresses her kids in them…hard to get more high profile in America. But how to reach the international press? Easy, show at the tents at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which they did, presentation style, on Tuesday morning.

One verrrry high-placed fashion editor confided, “I see a lot of things I want to wear right now.” And we have to agree.
