CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Joseph Altuzarra's collection for J.Crew has been hotly anticipated, partly because it's been kept tightly under wraps. Until now, that is. While no official lookbook has been released, today we spotted the first pieces from the collection on Vogue.com. In a story about affordable French style, Vogue featured several pieces from Altuzarra's forthcoming collection. We've got our eyes on the gingham blouse and striped dress for now, and we will post new pictures as we find them! The collection is due to hit stores April 23, and collections from runners-up Pamela Love (she designed denim!) and Creatures of the Wind will hit J.Crew stores starting next month.
J.Crew is known for being able to mix classic style with quirky and colorful details, and this season the focus was on prints and texture. Graphic print sweaters were mixed with ladylike skirts, and printed pants were a major highlight. Check out the entire presentation here, and then read our entire review.

The sleek, monochromatic trend may have started in Spring with designers like Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, and Celine showing head-to-toe white, blue, and gray ensembles, but it’s still going strong for Summer, particularly in light- or bright-colored hues.
