The Alexa Chung Resort 2019 collection lookbook is a love letter to New York City. Which makes sense, since the 34-year-old style mogul spent many years of her 20s getting to know the vibrant destination. The season’s new “Ludlow” line was inspired by distinctly “Eighties glamour on the streets of the Lower East Side and East Village,” according to WWD, yet the pieces shown feel right at home in a modern-day wardrobe.
The scenes of the influencer and designer’s latest lookbook follow an imagined day in the life of a New Yorker, who may start off the mornings with coffee and a light workout routine, head off to their corporate desk job, and find themselves on the sundown subway headed to a dance club where they’ll shimmy the night away. Of course, there’s an outfit for all of the above occasions represented as well.
From ballerina-inspired bodysuits to posh blouses and ruffled party dresses, you are sure to find your new favorite wardrobe staples in this line. We particularly love the red off-the-shoulder sleeve frock, and the street style-perfect Kelly green leather coat that comprise this nostalgic yet super-wearable season.
“It’s so wrong it’s right,” Alexa Chung told WWD about the collection, describing it as perfect for the “dancer by day and city ‘It’ girl by night.” This line has you covered from the ballet barre to the post-work Happy Hour bar.
