Sorry, but a lot of these clothes I wore back in the early to mid 90's... including clogs. I don't know, for me the whole thing is a repeat of what many of us wore 18-20 years ago that apparently is now "in style."

Nothing new.

Nothing inspiring.

Just a rehashed collection that the kids of the parents who wore them years ago are now wearing.

I actually don't mind these looks, even though they are a little bit old fashioned. I do love clogs, but you can find similar shoe styles at Zara right now so I'm wondering why the price point is so much higher.. Other than Chung's celebrity of course. Very feminine collection, nice.

haha, what? i'm not saying it's a bad thing, because i think the collection is purposefully a "get alexa's closet for less!" type of concept exactly like kate's topshop range was supposed to be, but for basically every single look i've seen it's blatantly obvious that either individual pieces are watered down versions of stuff she's been photographed in or are duplicates of whole outfits she's worn. i don't think it's any worse than what kate/topshop did (which i didn't really see much wrong with tbh) and yeah most of it wasn't anything original to begin with (e.g. the clogs, as were already mentioned) but i think it's silly to deny the obvious "over-inspiration."


that being said, there's some stuff i do like, but yeah most of the models look horrible so i would definitely want to try it on first :/

Obviously, the collection is nothing new or groundbreaking - she's not a designer. Of course the collection is inspired by her own style - that was the point. However, I just don't see really obvious designer rip-offs (the original point was that designers would be annoyed by her). The dress on the Hole cover looks like any other vintage-y peter pan collar dress.

A few looks that weren't posted by wwd
