Alexa Chung, became all the rage in the fashion world for her quirky and menswear-inspired fashion choices, earning her fashion icon status and her own Mulberry bag named the ‘Alexa’ back in 2009. Described as the “Kate Moss of our generation” by the New York Times, Alexa was born in England and started her career in the fashion world as a model, appearing in both magazines and music videos.
After her short stint at modelling, the blazer-loving beauty decided to study journalism. Alexa has co-hosted numerous TV shows, such as T4’s “Frock Me”, NBC’s “2011 Golden Globe Arrivals Special”, MTV’s and ” It’s On with Alexa Chung” among others.
The staples of her wardrobe seem to be tailored blazers, striped pieces, oxford shoes, girly flowered dresses, small stachel bags, long cardigans and boyfriend sweaters.
A Girl of Singular Beauty

Italian-born Paolo Roversi began his career as a reporter for the Associated Press when he was 23 years old, and later fell in love with fashion photography, gaining recognition in 1980 after working in a Christian Dior beauty campaign and becoming one of the most important fashion photographers of our time.
The virtue of this photosoot lies in its timelessness an its ability to portray in equal measures the beauty of the model and intricacies of the dresses.
Today we mourn the loss of a genius and a true visionary. Thank you Steve Jobs, for inspiring us and for changing the world.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Stanford commendement speech, June 2005.

The irreverent combination of green suede, wild patterns, burgundy calf hair pieces, metallic pants and purple fringed suede ankle boots, along with the added doodle effects take this editorial to a new playful level where fashion is not to be taken seriously, but to be enjoyed in its entirety.
Classy and a little careless, the key to this look is to combine a ladylike and structured bag with a chunky and boyish knit sweater while mixing muted and blush tones together and ta-da! You have achieved the perfect look to transition smoothly from summer to fall.
How do you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall? Let me know in the comments!
The formula for Isabel Marant’s Spring 2012 Ready-To-Wear Collection combines American sportswear clothing, tie-dye, patchwork jeans, exotic blouses, embroidered pieces, body-con dresses and her trademark chunky cable knit sweaters to create the ultimate boho Parisian-cool (and youthful!) look.
The Isabel Marant girl is the epithome of casual dressing; she is aventurous, easy going, well-traveled and incorporates folkloric pieces into her everyday wardrobe. But the French designer’s approach to a casual style is far from being boyish, the collection still maintains a feminine touch with Marant’s latest creation: the nude ankle chain sandals.

The photoshoot for this editorial took place in Peru, in the city of Cusco, in 2008. The concept for the photoshoot was to portray two backpack travelers (‘mochileras’) discovering an exotic destination and getting lost in its beauty. This is easily one of my favorite editorials and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
