For a story on how J.Crew have taken the brand to London and opened three stores in England’s capital city, it chose to appropriate photographic likenesses of Prince William and his wife Katherine to reinforce that idea—and very nicely done too.
To the magazine’s credit, they show how the art director went about creating the cover.
The illustrator Adrian Tomine writes: “Where I was in Brooklyn, I don’t think I would have even known that there was a major storm happening. So I spent the whole night glued to the Internet and watching everything unfolding, just being shocked that this kind of dramatic destruction was happening just miles outside my home. And I started thinking about how it would affect the election. This is a first for me in terms of doing a cover that’s topical with a quick turnaround, and somehow these two significant events just came together into that one image for me.”
