Late yesterday afternoon, J.Crew held their fall 2011 presentation at a studio space in the Meatpacking District. The place was packed with editors photographing outfits and photographers photographing editors. We even heard the Sartorialist was there, though we didn't see him. While the men's collection was subdued and mature (more on that, plus photos, in just a bit), the womenswear was a riot of color, especially when it came to pants.

There were pink pants, fuchsia pants, purple pants. Editors were greeted upon arrival by a handsome pair of mossy tweed trousers, and the standout look of the collection was a pair of faintly shiny, brick-red print crops paired with a teal trench and leopard heels. If you're not six feet tall and you're mildly depressed by all the long, lean summer dresses in the magazines right now, take heart: J.Crew is here to tell you there is life after maxi-skirts.
