At first I thought "Finally! J Crew has launched their baby line."
Oh a bunch of striped and polka dot onesies and playsuits, how original. I could get the same thing at H&M for half the cost.
The girl stuff is cute but what is up with the selection for baby boys?! *angrily shaking my hand at the computer screen**
[$178 for a cashmere baby one-piece with a skull on it. No thanks.]
I can see this line being a hit with brand loyal buyers with money to spare but overall I am unimpressed. There is nothing original or creative about their designs or prints. J Crew's saving grace will probably be the fact that they will be carrying some other high end baby brands like Oeuf, Petit Bateau, Sperry, Minnetonka, 7 A.M. Enfant, Old Soles, Lem Lem, Rikshaw Designs, Anais & I, Nililotan, Makie, Tane, Salt Water, Pom D'Api, Foundlings, Sea Bags, Swans Island, Manny and Simon, Areaware and DOIY. All of these brands are widely available from other retailers so I would do a quick web search if you are interested in any of the products. Here are some of my picks. Visit the J Crew site today to check out the complete collection!
