Fall is an exciting time of year for me because all of the mammoth-sized September issues of fashion magazines start showing up in my mailbox. And over the last few years, a lot of mass market catalogs have taken notice and picked up on their editorial cues.
When it comes to design, one of the consistently best catalogs around is J. Crew. I always love flipping through their Style Guides The type is always crisp, the layouts have a ton of white space and it’s much more artsy than what you’d usually expect from a chain of their size.
I love catalogs because I feel like they’re a time capsule of what’s happening in fashion and design right at the present moment. They’re a great reference point to see what’s trending.
