>> For Spring 2012, Jenna Lyons and Marissa Webb stuck to what they do best — that is, churning out a well-edited selection of everyday staples and show-stoppers. There was a lot of buzz surrounding J.Crew's debut on the fashion calendar this week — and the collection, shown Tuesday to an amped-up Lincoln Center crowd, lived up to the hype. Eye candy in the form of cheery colors and prep prints — styled in that just-so Lyons way — was aplenty. Standouts included '50s-tinged cropped-pants in daffodil yellow; tent-sweaters in cerulean and citron; a floral-printed pants-set complete with peplum; and too many trim-cut shorts to count.
