The Crewcuts Collabs Just Keep Coming–Shop EDUN For J. Crew Now
Let me just say, this is a good time to be a kid. Not only did J. Crew recently team up with the American Museum of Natural History on a collection of kids tees, but they just debuted a brand new Crewcuts collab with EDUN. The 7-piece collection marks the first time EDUN has ventured into childrenswear and it's all for a great cause; 50% of the proceeds from the EDUN for J. Crew line will be used to benefit St. Ann's Orphanage in Kenya. Here's what Jenny Cooper, the head designer for Crewcuts had to say about the collab: "Designed by Danielle Sherman for EDUN, the collection uses classic "crewcut" shapes as the basis for each piece. Each clothing item from the collaboration has been constructed at a factory located close to St Ann's Orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya. As the factory also produces school uniforms for children, they introduced EDUN to St Ann's Orphanage and a partnership was subsequently established for several fundraising projects. With this collection, the fact that "crewcuts" is supporting commerce, manufacturing and education in Africa is extremely important to us."
