Alexa Chung’s Style Book Is A Work In Progress

Despite the initial confusion as to what her upcoming book will offer; an auto-biography, style guide or photo-based coffee table tome? - anything that will help us attain Alexa Chung’s preternaturally enviable style will be a sure-fire hit with us. And it seems that after months of speculation, momentum is finally gathering.
Chung told Vogue, “It’s good – it’s really fun! I had a meeting with them [her publishers] this morning actually. It was a struggle before as I’m so visual – that’s how I learn and imagine things. So when I was sending writing to them it was hard as I couldn’t envisage it at all. But then they sent me the proofs of how it will be laid out and we’re deciding where to put images and stuff. I literally have cut-outs of pictures I’ve taken and I get to be like: ‘That one goes there’. It’s one of my favourite things to do.”
It turns out all the initial confusion as to what the book would offer was somewhat Alexa’s fault,
“It’s because I didn’t know what I was doing! That’s the problem when people release it to press before you’ve written a word,” she explained. “I’m writing, I’m drawing and I’m taking photographs. It’s definitely not an autobiography, but it’s me writing so in a way it probably will have that element.”
“Drawing is probably the main, number one thing I can do – that I’m best at,” she revealed. “It makes sense, if I can get dressed well then that’s what I’m good at: visuals. Putting things next to things,”
The book, still untitled, will be launched later this year, published by Penguin Books.
