J. Crew's design team has been hard at work, and as NY1's Jessica Abo reports, spring and summer is all about unstructured yet classy looks.

Come spring/summer 2015, Tom Mora, J. Crew's head of women's design, says you'll see a roomy and relaxed collection.

"The fabrics of the collection really started with the idea of the indigenous people of Latin America and their artistic craft. So incredible stripes, ikats, textural fabrics, color," Mora says.

Mora says he also drew inspiration from a trip to Ibiza.

"I was just totally overwhelmed by the vibe there. It was such an amazing energy there," he says. "And the way people put themselves together there, there was such an ease to it."

On the men's side, spring/summer 2015 has a classy and clean look.

"We were inspired by these old pictures of Mediterranean fishing villages I found, old fisherman mending their nets at the docks, and that transported me right back to my childhood because I used to vacation in Spain and the south of France as well," says Frank Muytjens, head of men's design for J. Crew. "So that's how it all started."

Backstage, flashes are firing away as the J. Crew production team captures every image for the lookbook.

"It's really important that the designer gets to convey the entire look and lifestyle of each piece through merchandising, the collection, and the lookbook allows the buyer or the consumer to understand what the entire story is," says celebrity stylist and designer June Ambrose.

With these combos, you're bound to look picture perfect, too.

"I think J. Crew has a way of taking casual and still getting fashion infused into it. Not an easy thing to do," says Linda Fargo of Bergdorf Goodman. "And what people don't realize is, these guys have to turn out about maybe between 12 to 14 collections a year. Think about that. That's a lot of design time, a lot of production, and they hit it."

Leaving you with lots of options to row into spring in style.
