Alexa Chung is a model, TV presenter and fashion designer. She was first spotted by a model scout at the age of sixteen, and her career subsequently took off very quickly. Since then, Alexa has worked with big fashion names such as Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, DKNY and Lacoste.
Chung’s distinctive personal style has received a great deal of attention. She makes regular appearances on best dressed lists, and has been cited as a muse for many big design houses. She even inspired Mulberry to name a bag after her! After a number of successful design collaborations, Chung launched her own label alexachung earlier this year.
Like many style icons, Chung’s style is difficult to pin down. It’s a little bit classic, a little bit punk, a little bit vintage, a little bit edgy. Whether she’s sporting an androgynous shirt and trousers combo or a pretty floral frock, there’s always a delightfully boho edge to Chung’s creations.
Despite her trademark quirky style, Alexa tends to favour classic jewellery. She is often seen wearing delicate pendants and simple stud earrings. For Alexa, jewellery is often the finishing touch to an outfit, rather than the statement. This works as her jewellery adds polish without taking attention from her bolder outfit choices.
If Alexa were to stop by our contemporary jewellery shop in York, we think she’d love our Reeves & Reeves collection. Though the Reeves & Reeves collection is filled with delightfully quirky pieces, we think the scale is subtle enough to appeal to Alexa’s pulled back jewellery style.
