Where was I when the Merino Evening Primrose Cardigan was first introduced?????

Has anyone seen the Merino Evening Primrose Cardigan?

I know I haven't! And I really want to!!!

According to the J Crew website, this is the description of the Merino Evening Primrose Cardigan ... and by the way, there's no picture available.

Item Number: 18562 $88.00

We're loving the inky tones of this floral cardigan (our designers were inspired by a vintage print and had it recolored just for us). Spun from the finest whisper-weight Italian merino wool in a lofty 14-gauge knit. Fitted. Crewneck. Bracelet sleeves. Hits at hip. Import. Dry clean.

Doesn't it sound dreamy? Makes you want to run out and buy it? Doesn't it? Problem is... It's COMPLETELY SOLD OUT???!!! What the heck????!!!

Did I miss out on a really good thing? What did this cardigan look like anyway? Does anyone know? Did I really miss the ball on this one???? HELP!

I'm not sure if this is the same item or not -- it's just listed as the Primrose Cardigan, and I don't ever remember it being a "new arrival" - I only found mine WAAAAAY after the fact on eBay last summer (listed as "new" but clearly worn -- with the makeup stain to prove it). For the record, this cardigan doesn't dry clean particularly well. :(

Anyway....I'd made a polyvore set using the Primrose Cardigan here.

You can see a photo of the orange version here. Can anyone else confirm -- is this the same as the Merino Evening Primrose Cardigan?

I think the cardigan was made in the same pattern as the Primrose Evening Top and Silk Evening Brynn Dress.

It might be that it has not been uploaded yet.. it's possible.

I saw this today! All sold out, but even the photo was missing. Maybe it was released onto the site too early, like the whirling ruffles cardi, which was listed as sold out for several weeks and then appeared in all the sizes.

I do own the primrose cardi in cotton-cashmere blend in yellow (past seasons items) that RatsOnParade pictured, but think you ar talking about different item altogether. Would be curious to see, sounds lovely!

I agree- I am so confused by why the picture is missing but it's still listed on the website but as sold out.

Make up yer mind, J Crew! And what is it?!

This is the "evening" primrose (not to be confused with the older primrose cardigan) , the same pattern in item #17240. They are having a website glitch, much like they had with the whirled cardigan last week. Never fear.... it will return.

RatsOnParade, interesting, I too first thought that it was the Primrose Cardigan you pointed out (BTW, I own it in the Orange and the Yellow) but I believe that it's different because the description says that it's an inky color which leads me to believe it's a different cardigan.

Susan, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you're right. :)

Kathy, I really hope it's not sold out yet. Susan could be right... maybe it's not posted yet.

Hi Slastena! How are you doing? How's the pregnancy going? I agree. I'm quite certain it's a different sweater. I love our Primrose Cardigans. I love those little flowers on it. :)

Hi Lovely Chloe Lady! How are you doing? The missing picture and the Sold Out notice confuses me greatly. I too wish that they would make up their minds and stick to it! Grrrrrr!!!

Crew_Girl_In_Canada said...

CDP, hmmmm... what's the Whirled Cardigan? I must go check that out now. ;)

I have an IRL picture of the primrose cardigan on my blog. While I was at the store today I knew I remembered someone inquiring about it but I couldn't remember who! It's absolutely beautiful in person and the price isn't too bad ($88). Check it out on my blog!
