The two stores in Hong Kong comprise a women's collection store in the International Finance Centre and a men's shop at On Lan Street in Central.
The women's J Crew Collection store offers a selection of limited-edition designs, Point Sur denim, Italian cashmere and includes exclusive fabrics and prints, along with jewelery, accessories and a shoe collection.
The men's shop is designed as a specialty store housing three floors of J Crew's best menswear designs including the full Ludlow suiting and shirting collection, in addition to Wallace & Barnes, denim, and a shoe collection.
Both locations will offer a VIP programme providing services such as exclusive access to new collections, home or office delivery, monogramming, alterations, one-on-one style appointments, and before and after store hours.
It understood J Crew is looking to expand gradually in Asia, with five or six stores opening in Hong Kong in the next few years, and possibly a return to Japan. A potential store opening is also said to be planned for China.
