The first time I know Olympia Gayot, Head of Design for Women at J.Crew, via TikTok. No, not her own account, but a viral video by Caitlin Murphy, who says she hasn’t “felt this fascination with J.Crew since the Jenna Lyons days” and describes Gayot as “the new fashion icon we all need to know.” Hundreds of TikTokers agreed and enjoyed Gayot’s personal style in the comments section. “Me too, I haven’t gone in 5 years and now I’m checking their website every week,” one comment read. Now if that’s not proof that Gayot is doing something right at J.Crew, I don’t know what is.
Naturally, I jumped at the chance to interview Gayot and get her expert insight into the best of the best. summer trend 2022 to try now. Scroll down to see how she personally styles trends on Instagram and shop for the J.Crew pieces she loves.
