One of my most anticipated events of New York Fashion Week was Alexa Chung's preview party for her Madewell collection.
The reason is twofold; you know I'm a Madewell fanatic, and I was curious to meet girl-about-town Alexa. The totally unpretentious, totally fun party validated my obsessions. Due out in the Fall, mini Alexas were stationed around the Bowery Hotel. That means denim hot pants, grandpa cardigans, tweed blazers, romantic blouses, vintage jewelry, and clogs. Some of her friends - Pixie Geldof and Poppy Delevigne - served as models; Project Runway alum Christian Siriano even made a cameo. I received word that Madewell will be launching e-commerce early Summer, but until then, here's some Alexa dish.
So what do you think of your collection for Madewell?
It's a bit weird, because everyone looks like me. I love it, it's great.
What are your favorite pieces?
That black velvet shirt, that silk white skirt, in the Winter it would be really nice with a navy blue peacoat.Read More »from Exclusive! Alexa Chung Does Not Shop Online . . . but We Love Her Anyway
