On the Case
J.Crew’s done a pretty good job bringing workwear flavor to their stock of button-ups and work staples, but it’s hard to know what that means for more practical items like a laptop case. What does a fisherman keep his MacBook in?
Well, it’s probably something like this. SwipeLife drew our attention to this collab between J.Crew and the Quebecois design house Want Organic (also known as Want Les Essentiels de la Vie), which brings together sustainable Norwegian leather, organic Turkish cotton, and a surprisingly spare design aesthetic. There are interior pockets for a smartphone, business cards and a few papers, but in general it’s as stripped down as possible…which feels about right, given the gear it’ll be sharing the store with.
