color block

i was going to write about my most favorite house in minneapolis (if not the whole universe) today, but it turns out that street view doesn't even get near it - who knew Linden Hills was not good enough for street view? I'll have to take a picture of it later.

But then, low and behold, what lays on my desk at work but the new JCREW CREW CATALOG? I like JCrew because their clothing is mostly too expensive for me and looks boring in store, but whoever designs, art directs, and styles their catalogs are all geniuses. They play with color very well, and the type is so hot I would prefer not to even talk about it. Let's just look, shall we? You can see all the pages here. Some are great, although once it gets into the guy's stuff it's kind of boring.

  1. feel like this catalog illustrates exactly why i don't particularly like j crew. if you look at the female models (most of which can't be over 20), they looked aged by ten years! "so matronly..." thanks michael kohrs.
