alexa Chung For M&S

Yes, Look's bagged you an ex­clu­sive preview of Archive by Alexa for M&S… and we've even tri­alled it on real women's bods too! Head on in for Look's – and Alexa's – very fash' ver­dict…

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

She’s the girl who launched a thou­sand copy­cats (and then some) and went from T4 to haute cou­ture. She’s Alexa Chung, and her sec­ond col­lec­tion for M&S has fi­nally ar­rived.

Alexa’s first foray into the Marks and Spencer archive pro­duced piecrust col­lar blouses, clas­sic trench coats and Chelsea boots. It also cre­ated a suit­able amount of hys­te­ria (largely within the Look of­fice, granted) and some rather fran­tic trips to our lo­cal M&S. Thus, when news broke of a sec­ond in­stal­ment, the pal­pi­ta­tions be­gan once again. Gone are the cardi­gans and bal­let flats from round one and, in their place, heaps of vel­vet, lash­ings of leop­ard print, satin shirts and polka dot frocks.

While the Vic­to­ri­ana blouse sold out within the first day back in April, this sea­son’s stand-out buy looks to be the vinyl coat, de­buted by Alexa her­self at LFW. There’s also the fluffy, zip-up jacket that ap­peared on her In­sta a few weeks ago, not to men­tion vel­vet suits, per­fect V-neck knits and check over­coats.

In fact, we were so ex­cited about this col­lec­tion that we de­cided to try it out, just so we could bring you our ver­dict. SPOILER ALERT! We all re­ally liked it.
