J. Crew have announced they will open their first UK store. At the presentation of the label's Fall 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week, the company's executive creative director Jenna Lyons confirmed reports.

"We're looking at spaces on Regent Street. And I wouldn't mind being in Covent Garden for a smaller store. It won't be just one store - we're not gonna be stingy," she said.

"We have a huge British following already - our New York stores get a lot of customers, and what we do is not very well represented in the British market. There are very classic clothes, but they're high end. And women's especially, there isn't that classic tailoring but with a twist, and also colour, which we do. So from what I've been told we might be hopefully filling a niche."

At this stage a loose date for the store is 2013. For now you can shop J. Crew online via jcrew.com or Net-a-Porter.
