Jenna Lyons Chats with Garance Doré…says I used to Wear My Dad Suits
Jenna Lyons, J.crew‘s President and Creative Director, is undoubtedly the ultimate face of preppy fashion. Her style, which mixes very structured elements with incredible whimsical pieces as she explains (in this video), was inspired by necessity. “I was 6′ tall when I was in the seventh grade,” she explains. “When you go to the Nordstrom’s kid section, there’s nothing for you. So I ended up wearing my dads my suits… I didn’t have a lot to work with!” That experience, Lyons explains, shaped her personal style. If you’re obsessed with Jenna (and truthfully who isn’t), the interview is a must watch.
