Alexa Chung for AG Denim

Alexa Chung, world renowned ‘It’ girl and transatlantic fashion icon has expanded her designer collaboration repertoire into denim. Following on from two previous collections with American brand Madewell, she unveils this new collaboration with AG Jeans.

Chung has designed a 21-piece denim-focused collection, which is available to buy now. Featured are skinny jeans, dungarees, frilled dresses, shirts, flared jeans and A-line skirts, all in varying shades of denim, from navy blue to khaki green and white. Chung had a big hand in designing this collection in Los Angeles, which is proved by her innate aura of utter coolness being visibly present. She is known for her sultry but not over-exposed looks and whimsical, preppy styling, and this collection is no different, demonstrated by the incredible lookbook she has created, modelling each piece.

It's a boy/girl thing...

In a business that can change so rapidly and so frequently, menswear and womenswear have their own distinct trends to keep up with the pace. However, on occasion these trends merge together and in recent times there has been a rise in the number of gender neutral collections being produced by brands.

This has culminated in high-end department chain Selfridges’ Oxford Street store launching 5 unisex collections across three floors, with the clothes not being aimed at any specific gender but wearable by both. They have recognised that their shoppers are wanting less and less to be limited by their gender stereotypes in terms of what pieces they’re expected to shop and so, by uniting both genders under the same, non-defined section, the London store is making individual self-expression a lot more accessible.

The 29 year old actor is seen here at an awards ceremony, opting for a casual approach instead of the sharp suits usually found at such affairs. Here's how to shop the outfit on the high street:
