Altuzarra, Pamela Love, And Creatures of The Wind Arrive At J.Crew-------
The winners and runners-up of the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund are once again getting an added boost with the accolade: capsule collections debuting this spring at J.Crew. Last week, the retailer hosted a dinner to toast Joseph Altuzarra, this year’s winner, as well as Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Chris Peters, all of whom will see their wares sold at www.jcrew.com, at the chain’s Fifth Avenue store, and by phone. Altuzarra’s seven-piece Saint-Tropezienne-inspired collection goes on sale tomorrow, with Breton-stripe sweaters and dresses, pencil skirts, and suede espadrilles among the offerings. Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind each created three pieces; they’ll go on sale on May 17 and June 14, respectively, though they’ll be available for preorder by phone tomorrow as well
