Passport to Bali

Whatever Mickey Drexler is doing, he’s doing it well. J. Crew’s latest campaign takes place in the exotic terrains of Indonesia, saturated with bright-hued threads, perfectly-tailored pants and accessories that put your regular exotic trinkets to shame. Mandatory note on cultural appropriation, Orientalism, imperialist framework etc. (thanks, four long years of Development Studies!) aside,  I think you just can’t help but appreciate the amazing artistic nature of these shots. So, academic pretension aside, J. Crew did pretty good.
