"Us lot on London lockdown are obsessing about the Alexa Chung for Madewell stuff. Personally am too scared to brave the J Crew online shopping cart—I sort of don't trust it in Luddite way. Apparently the collection is going down a storm in NYC and the staff at J Crew have been banned from buying it at discount. Steph Stevens, a Guardian contributor who styled the gorgeous ad campaign emailed this morning to say that she too is waiting for an "inky Combie and a brunette silk blouse" to cross the Atlantic. Hmmm, a tricky shopping mission - there are going to be some serious fashion points awarded to editors who manage to get their hands on the stuff by the time London starts next week." [Guardian]
