stumbled across the above preview of Alexa Chung for Madewell pieces eariler this evening and spent a while trying to narrow down my favourite pieces...it was hard!basically if i won the lottery or stumbled across a suitcase full of money i would buy every piece in the collection when it lands in store, alas i doubt this is going to happen :(
oh well one can only hope that it's made available online, although i have a feeling most of it will be snapped up straight away then flogged for ten times its origional price on eBay, those darn greedy people!!

while i do love each piece in this collection, i do realise a lot of it is nothing new, but i do believe its basically a copy of those wonderful vintage pieces you spot every once in a while on someone 'tres cool' and wish you'd found yourself. and im not one complain about someone doing that 'hunting' and making it available for me!
what does everyone else think about the collection?

i agree, it's like the vintage pieces you wished you owned but because of their one off nature it's impossible.
i really like the use of velvet. obsessed with velvet.

I was going to say, it is a little uninspired. Although, I'd still happily wear it all!

Love Grace.

Sweden does seem to have a lot of amazing boutiques and style; I would definitely go there If I won the lottery. I think with Alexa's collection you would mostly be paying for the label because a lot of her pieces you can find in vintage stores, or the quirky side of Zara and Topshop (I think).

I really love the collection, it's full of the kind of things I wish I could find in my local vintage shops, you can tell Alexa has had a lot of input in the collection I think.

I love her collection, esp as the prices looks super affordable too! I don't have an issue with authentcity either, I like vintage copies as they don't smell, fits me, and I can create my own history with them anyway.

ps: belated but thank you the very illuminating comment. I feel exactly the same way, indulgence within reason is okay! haha.

I have to say I loved the presentation but now I'm seeing the pieces as seperates I don't feel like I HAVE to have any of it except maybe all the velvet pieces ;)

Love,

This is perfect! and typical alexa too. i wish i could own every piece, it would make the transition from summer to fall completely effortless. well done chung!

Vicki said...

daisy kate said...

I know what you mean but I can't help but adore the peter pan collars and just pretty much anything Alexa Chung rests her hands on. I want it! Do you know when the UK is getting it?

i loooooved this. it's definitely a collaboration because alexa's style is not totally domineering in the clothes, it has a very madewell-feel to it as well.
but yea, i love it, i would like one of every piece please. :))
