Todd Snyder Taps Frank Muytjens as Guest Creative

Todd Snyder is a loyal friend.
First, he brought the former GQ editor Jim Moore on board to act as a stylist for his spring runway show and editorial campaigns. Now, he’s tapped Frank Muytjens, a longtime friend and one-time colleague at J. Crew, to be the first person featured in the new “Curated by” segment of his popular catalogue.
“Frank is such a huge talent and we were really close friends when we worked together at J. Crew,” Snyder said.
So it was a no-brainer when he came up for the idea for a series of creative types to curate their favorite pieces in his catalogue, that he would turn to Muytjens to kick it off.
