Alexandra Spencer is a model who blogs. Her well-known site is named 4th and Bleeker and is more of a photo diary than a blog, offering skimpily-attired photo shoots and travel chronicles. Recently, the leggy Australian blonde linked up with troubled retailer Billabong to design a capsule collection of separates. As she told an Aussie mag, "Billabong is quintessentially Australian. I grew up on the beach, so this is so exciting. I wanted to create the perfect holiday wardrobe that you could chuck in a suitcase and take to the south of France: perfect jeans, a good tank top, good shirts."
Teaser photos of the line, which hits Billabong stores September 9th, have been popping up Spencer's Instagram feed recently. It will include model-off-duty essentials like teensy lace-up cut-offs, leopard jeans, a black bomber jacket and an oversize jean jacket.
