J.Crew fans, today is a good day. The brand announced that Johanna Uurasjarvi will be the company’s new chief design officer. While Uurasjarvi does not hold the exact same title as Jenna Lyons did, who was the president and executive creative director, she will be overseeing the overall design direction for J.Crew, Crewcuts, and Mercantile. It remains to be seen if her impact and persona will be as widely felt as the much-loved Ms. Lyons, but we’re all excited for a new chapter of the classic American brand. While we wait until her first collections for the brand debut (2019!), brush up on your knowledge of the new chief design officer.
