>> J.Crew hasn't scored a Christian Louboutin collaboration yet, but they are working with Lulu Frost's Lisa Salzer for a capsule Holiday 2010 jewelry collection.
“I had been in a California store called TenOverSix about a year ago when I was home for Christmas, and I bought this amazing necklace," recalled J.Crew president Jenna Lyons. "I said, ‘I work at J.Crew, would it be OK if I got in touch with the designer?'"
Marissa Webb, J.Crew women's design director, visited the Lulu Frost studio and selected pieces from Salzer's archives as the collection's basis. The vintage pieces are mixed with elements like handmade chains and glass crystals to modernize their look. The collection will be available both in stores and online and ranges from about $75 for earrings to $175 for a necklace.
