The retailer has teamed up with Lane Crawford to sell its men’s and women’s collections both online and in brick-and-mortar stores. Lane Crawford has four outposts in Hong Kong (though only one will carry J.Crew at first), as well as one store in Beijing (which will also sell J.Crew). A selection of men’s apparel and accessories and women’s ready-to-wear and shoes will be available.
Explains Mickey Drexler:
“We always want to work with the ‘best of the best,’ and Lane Crawford was at the top of our fantasy list. When it comes to editing and presenting collections with a creative and elevated point of view, no one does it better. We are beyond excited to partner with Lane Crawford to help introduce J. Crew to Asia.”
This is J. Crew’s first expansion outside of the US.
