London Fashion Week: Alexa Chung Shows Quirky Classics

London Fashion Week: Alexa Chung Shows Quirky Classics

Saturday, 16 February 2019 10:37 AM

LONDON (AP) — London Fashion Week is picking up pace with Alexa Chung, Jasper Conran and other designers offering catwalk shows Saturday, to be followed by the House of Holland and Simone Rocha.

The spectacle is bringing much needed color and verve as gray London shakes off its winter blues amid the first hints of warmer weather.

ALEXA CHUNG SHOWS QUIRKY CLASSICS

Model and TV presenter Alexa Chung has a loyal fan base and her many admirers flocked to Saturday's show in London's redeveloped King's Cross neighborhood. They weren't disappointed as Chung offered a new collection featuring her quirky, feminine take on classic designs.

For her second London Fashion Week show, called "Off the Grid," the designer announced she had lost all interest in "prettiness" and was imagining a "gaggle of women" who have retreated to California's Big Sur coastal wilderness to regroup.

There's an independence to the collection, even as some of the models wear long coats with matching head scarves that are evocative of the American prairie. Many of the deceptively simple dresses emphasize the shoulders, giving the women an outline of physical strength, and much of the outerwear is masculine in style, particularly a forest green suit.

Chung showed an easy, eclectic touch in a collection that included long black coats, several sexy gold dresses, and a few beautiful green midi dresses, including one that Chung wore to the show.
