Vancouver fashion lovers rejoice: J. Crew, the beloved and iconic U.S. brand, has finally opened its doors in your city.

Now open to the public at 1088 Robson St., the store will carry the line's bright, preppy and fashionable womenswear as well as the much-coveted men's collection (which has yet to launch in Canada).

The two-storey location is only the second J. Crew store to open north of the 49th -- Toronto's first shop opened in August 2011.

The company's expansion plans include a store at West Edmonton Mall and another at Toronto's Eaton Centre later this year.

The store is just the latest American retail chain to expand to Canada. In February, Target held a pop-up shop in Toronto (hundreds of people showed up to nab looks from designer Jason Wu). And Marshall's, one of the world's leading off-price retailers, recently opened several stores in Ontario.

According to Jenna Lyons, the President and Creative Director of the company, the response to J.Crew's Canada presence has been incredibly positive. "We're excited to be opening combined men's and women's stores and are working to curate our high quality fashion collections for each market."

This despite some shoppers' complaints J. Crew's Canadian pricing is much higher than in the U.S.

Excited for the store's opening? Take a look at some of the items from J.Crew's spring/summer 2012 line.
