With former MTV VJ Alexa Chung’s sexy tomboy style and Madewell’s laid back feminine flair, we knew their design collaboration would be a match made in fashion heaven. And now, just days before Alexa’s collection hits stores next week, we have an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at her ad campaign shot in Big Sur, California by stylist Venetia Scott. In this video, directed by John Urbano, Alexa frolics in a field showing off her new line, which runs the gamut from pretty dresses to striped overalls. And did we mention the affordable prices? The collection will retail from $48 to $358! “I’m very excited for my first collaboration and thrilled that it’s with Madewell,” Chung says in a statement. “This partnership came together organically and is a great fit as the brand is so classic and really encompasses my style. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the team and I can’t wait for my friends to wear it!” Alexa’s collection will launch online at on September 9, followed by an in-store debut in New York City on September 10, as part of Fashion’s Night Out at Madewell’s SoHo store, where Alexa will be on hand to celebrate.
