J. Crew and Anna October are back with a new collaboration, and this time they’re bringing a little sophisticated glam to your summer wardrobe

Launching today, the second drop from the American mainstay and the Ukrainian womenswear brand offers a minimalistic, elegant take on timeless, feel-good closet staples. Full of bright, cheerful colors, the 12-piece capsule collection includes pastel-colored slip dresses with lingerie-inspired details — an Anna October signature — a structured blazer, matching satin sets (think: a black bralette with shorts, and a white sleeveless top with wide-leg trousers), and three white dresses that will have all your special-occasion dressing needs covered whether you have a wedding, a summer party, or a night out with the girls on your social calendar this summer. 

To capture the summer-in-the-city spirit of the campaign, October herself, as well as her “close friends and muses,” modeled the collection in Paris, where the designer has a showroom. “When designing this collection, I envisioned my perfect summer: evenings with the girls, contemplating nature, bunches of flowers, and conquering the big city with a smile and inner freedom,” designer Anna October said in an email. “This feeling of lighthearted femininity was a huge inspiration for the shoot that I made for this collaboration. The clothes are infused with pure love and true friendship.”

J. Crew first teamed up with Anna October for a holiday-ready collection last December, and the retailer hasn’t slowed down since. This year alone, J. Crew debuted a nautical-themed jewelry collection with NYC brand Catbird, as well as a ‘90s-inspired collaboration with USA Swimming.

The latest J. Crew x Anna October capsule collection is available to shop now. Prices range from $148 to $398.
