Fashion: J.Crew for High Line Park

J Crew's online Capsule Collection brings New York City to B.C.

J Crew High Line Charm Bracelet

Raised on David Suzuki documentaries and old-growth rainforest adventures, British Columbians understand that our quality of life is raised when we have access to green spaces. J.Crew gets that too.

That’s why they’ve created an online capsule collection in honour of one of the New York City’s most beloved parks, The High Line. This lush, landscaped walkway was built on an abandoned elevated railway in Manhattan five years ago and has become a popular back-to-nature refuge in the most densely populated neighbourhood in North America.

With 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the Friends of The High Line, this collection features illustrated T-shirts, iconic imagery and cool accessories. The horseshoe charm bracelet is a standout piece and is sure to stand the test of time (and fickle seasonal trends).

And with a little luck (and shoppers’ donations), this special green space will remain a rural retreat for urban dwellers for many seasons to come.
