J Crew to Open UK E-Commerce Store
American retailer J Crew is set to launch an e-commerce site in the UK at the end of this month. While a selection of its womenswear is stocked by fashion e-tailer Net-A-Porter, the US brand – priced at the top end of the high-street market – had otherwise been unavailable to UK customers.
Based in New York, J Crew currently has 251 retail stores in the US, and is soon to open a new flagship store in Toronto, Canada.
Worn by America’s First Lady Michelle Obama, among others, the brand sells basics and fashion-led casual and occasionwear, as well as swimwear, accessories, shoes and underwear for men, women and children. Prices range from around $25 (£15) for a women’s cotton T-shirt, to more than $3,000 (£1,829) for bridal gowns.
