J. Crew Reclaims Boardwalk for Fashion Week

It’s not only what you’re wearing—it’s what you’re wearing it on. Harvested decades ago from the South American jungles, and hauled by elephant and ox cart before being milled into New York areas storied beachfront walkways, the salvaged tropical hardwoods now turn up at the forefront of American fashion—an unlikely but appropriate transformation for the times.

Sawkill will reclaim all woods from J.Crew’s Fashion Week installation, per the apparel firm’s request.
