Alexa Chung x Madewell Fall 2011

Alexa goes to Texas for a second round of peter pan collars and short shorts.

We are slightly disappointed that newly-single Alexa Chung appears to be ignoring our carefully curated line-up of potential suitors, but the girl has been busy. Maybe the single life is working in her favour if she really were dating James Franco or Pete Doherty it's doubtful she'd have had time to flee to Austin, Texas to swing on porch chairs and stroll down train tracks, which she just did in a campaign shoot for her latest Madewell collection.

It's Alexa's second collection for the brand, and by the looks of it it's the public's second chance to get their hands on more of the peter pan collars, super-short shorts and soft knitted jumpers that were sold out as soon as they hit shelves last time around (the release date for this collection is September 22, so mark your calendars). Chung's new season inspirations are the same that seems to inspire most of her own outfits, which is "girls in bands who wouldn't mind getting cold."

More specifically, it's cross-country road trips, lived-in looks and girls standing side of stage. Chung admits that short shorts in winter are not the most practical thing, but that you can wear tights with them. And if she can do it throughout the entirety of a London winter, we're more than willing to give it a shot on our own turf.
