The Parisian stores will carry both women’s and men’s clothing, however the new London space will carry womenswear exclusively. “Paris is one of the great fashion and consumer cities in the world, and lots of French customers are shopping in our New York stores- it wasn’t a difficult choice,” said J. Crew chairman and chief executive Mickey Drexler. France is reportedly among the top countries that shop J. Crew online. The French locations will be located in restored, historic buildings.

We’ve known for a long time that it’s a super-interesting market,” he explained. Industry experts say Manila has Asia’s best performing economy.
