Alexa Chung for Madewell

We all know and love Alexa Chung for her effortlessly cool style. Most girls would kill to have a piece of that style and it has been made possible with Alexa’s latest collection for fashion brand Madewell.

Madewell originated in Massechusetts, America and produced workwear . Its now more commonly known for its hip, indie fashion, making it the perfect brand for Alexa to be associated with.

Alexa’s second collection with the brand is said to be a mixture of 1970s and 1990s influence, with a very ‘girls in bands’ feel to it.  Take a look at the promotional video for the collection below.

We love it. Tellus what your thoughts are on her latest collection.

Givenchy Couture AW11

Riccardo Tisci has brought so much to the Givenchy label since he was made creative director in 2005. I would give him the same credibility for transforming the Givenchy label into a modernised fashion brand as I would to Christopher Bailey and his work at Burberry. I think the thing that draws me to the Givenchy couture line now is that Tisci has brought an edge too the fashion house and has infused the brand with more imagination than its ever had before.

It comes as no surprise that his AW11 haute couture line is more than just fashion. It represents true imagination, creativity and craftmanship from the designer. Tisci used a variation of different embellishments and fabrics to create his stunning couture line including, tigers-eyes pearls with crystals which were used to replicate ostrich skin and one dress was constructed with perfectly symmetrical hand cut tulle pieces of fabric to create the illusion of fish scales. Amazing.

Take a look at the collection below…
