J. Crewd is a wickedly funny satire on J. Crew, the twenty-something clothing catalogue for yuppies, preppies, and Winona Ryder-in-Reality Bites wannabes. Illustrated with 90210-ish models sporting leisure wear that would work equally well at a New Canaan barbecue, a night at the Viper Club, or a screening of Quentin Tarantino's latest film, this parody of today's fashions and fetishes is a hilarious social commentary on consumerism and contemporary taste.
Featuring items such as "So Chill Chinos," real babies from the J. Cloning line ("From the womb to you, we don't just make babies, we forge families."), and the "Pleine-Air Boxer," the humor cuts a wide swath as it skewers our out-of-control consumer society. But as the J. Crewd philosophy goes, an overeducated customer is our best shopper.
J. Crewd is a parody for all ages of sophisticated shoppers.
