I’ve always adored Alexa Chung’s French flair. Rebel and I often reference her effortless style. So what a lucky coincidence it was when I visited London on the precise weekend that Alexa launched her Marks & Spencer collection “Archive by Alexa”.
Alexa raided the fashion archives of M&S to hand pick standout pieces and relaunch them, some with a contemporary twist. One of my good friends secured the pea coat coat “Templar” and I was sold instantly. The sailor coat with double breasted gold buttons, velvet stitched collar and princess cut is a French chic dream come true. Originally a children’s coat in the 90s, Alexa upsized and remodeled this gem to give 2016 a much needed boost!
The good news for all Pan European fashionistas is that M&S deliver across Europe! So we can all indulge in a bit of Alexa Brit Chic!
Style this classic coat like me with opaque tights and flat, knee-high boots, or try classic Alexa style with ankle boots and jeans. To make your ensemble even more “Alexa”, pair with a Jane Birkin style Sicily Bag or other straw accessory!
