If you can look beyond the fact that "our" Alexa Chung has collaborated with an American brand and not a British one, then you may just be in for a treat. The model-turned-TV-presenter unveiled her debut range for J.Crew's Madewell line at New York Fashion Week yesterday. Pals Pixie Geldof and Poppy Delevigne lent a hand by modelling the collection which featured 1960s-inspired shorts and tea dresses.

"[Madewell] vision is kind of the same as mine. They like laid back styles, they like kind of relaxed clothes - classic, timeless things. So when they asked to collaborate, it was a perfect fit," she said. As for a long time partnership with Madewell, Alexa added: "We haven't really discussed another [collection] yet but it would be amazing to do."
