Oh, Alexa Chung, what can you not do? As we recently reported, the designer, DJ, television presenter extraordinaire, fashion muse, and all around style idol (phew!) is setting her sights on becoming a literary hero for us mere mortals with her upcoming fashion book. But of course, Alexa is no ordinary multi-talented style maven, so we should be expecting something a little different from the usual how-to humdrum.
While talking to Fashionista, Alexa admitted she wants to deliver a book of light, humorous musings a la Rookie rather than a hefty mantra to the fashion devout: 'It’s basically a compendium of drawings, photographs and I’m going to write about a bunch of stuff,' she says. 'It’s not like a “style bible”, which I keep reading it being reported as. It’s more like just imagery I find interesting and it’s going to have a sense of humour...I don’t really know yet. I haven’t written it yet.'
Well, while we're itching like celeb kids in cashmere for more details, we'll just have to wait until next September for Alexa to pick up that pen and start doodling her way to fashion book infamy. And if Alexa's writing style is anything like her fashion style, we'll be sure to expect something quite original, quirky and honest.
