J.Crew Garments for Good project is back! Last year, J.Crew collaborated with Bug Life and designer Emma Smith from London in designing bee themed garments to raise awareness for these black and yellow flying creatures. The collection was a big hit and sold out very quickly after the launch. This year, J.Crew is continuing the collaboration with Bug Life from the UK but also bringing The Xerces Society and illustrator Donald Robertson from the States on board.
The project this year is “Save the Bees”. 50% of the garments’ retail price will go to benefit both organization in their mission to save the bees.
The design this year is more playful and young. Ladies can wear a white linen mini skirt with the t-shirt for a cute casual look. Moms with daughters would have a matchy outfit that goes with the girl’s white bee t-shirt easily paired with a pastel colour tutu skirt. For mom and son matching outfit, the boy’s navy blue t-shirt can be paired with a pair of white shorts. I love the illustration on this year’s collaboration but I also love how Emma designed the different type of bees for the women, men, girls, and boys t-shirt representatively last year. Unfortunately, men don’t get a bee t-shirt this year.
