Alicia Vikander routinely kills it in the hair department, and her look at Monday's London premiere of the new "Jason Bourne" movie was no exception. But allow us to travel back in time for a moment — before we get to discussing the gorgeousness of Vikander's ponytail.  

The '90s were a booming heyday for ponytails, which rose to mainstream prominence on "Full House" where Stephanie Tanner's signature half-up side ponytail reigned supreme. 

And then there was the bubble ponytail. You'd use as many colorful elastics as you could get your hands on to create multiple sections down the length of the tail. This style had absolutely no chic factor because, well, multiple colorful hair elastics were involved. And then it made a fashion-y resurgence a few years ago at Valentino's fall 2014 show and soon Kendall Jenner wore her own #fashun take on the look to the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. Both of those interpretations were sleek, nape-of-the-neck ponytails with crazy-long extensions. Part of the popularity of this style stems from its versatility: No matter your hair type, it's flattering and fairly easy — assuming your hair is long. (This video tutorial breaks down how to get it on natural-textured hair.)

And now, Alicia Vikander has reimagined it once again (or rather, her hairstylist George Northwood has) with a softer, more textured effect.

Alexa Chung Is Finally Launching Her Own Eponymous Fashion Label

Fashion Trends

Rejoice! It-girl, trendsetter, model and designer Alexa Chung is finally launching her own eponymous fashion label, and it could even directly land from the stores to our wardrobes in May 2017.

Alexa Chung Is Launching Her Own Eponymous Fashion Label

After more than ten years in the fashion industry, countless campaigns and a few collaborations (such as those with AG JeansMarks & Spencer, Superga and Eyeko), the British icon has finally decided to step into the role of a fulltime fashion designer, taking the helm of her Alexachung fashion line.

Although Chung’s followers have been expecting a fashion line from her for a few years now, the 32-year-old talented woman did not feel ready to make such an important move towards the Fashion Hall of Fame, and wanted to wait as long as it was necessary for her to feel 100% ready to do it.

“I feel as though I’m kind of prepared to do it now. If it had been any time sooner than this, I either wouldn’t be responsible enough or have been able to take on this kind of feat,” she said in an exclusive interview with the Business of Fashion.

Alexachung, the pieces of which will be sold at selected online and bricks-and-mortar stores, such as MyTheresa, Selfridges and Galeries Lafayette, will focus on ready-to-wear clothing and accessories, the style of which will be highly sophisticated and always contemporary. The line is also going to include jewelry pieces Chungle, but also “permanents” that are said to be “daily luxuries”, which we can’t wait to see for sure.

Alexa won’t join in this venture alone: she is, in fact, going to have a top-notch six-person design team, the members of which all come from different backgrounds, music included. As for the managing director’s position, she appointed atelier Haider Ackermann’s former head Edwin Bodson, who will surely help the designer broaden her already big target audience.

“I have been fortunate enough to have found a wonderful team from various corners of the fashion industry and beyond to help realize my vision and make this lifelong dream a reality,” Alexa Chung said in an official statement, revealing her biggest wish too. “We hope to bring you wearable, cool clothing you can live in and love in, whilst exploring the sartorial relationship between masculinity and femininity, something that has been a cornerstone of my personal style since I was old enough to dress myself.”

As for the pricing, Chung told the Business of Fashion that she wants to reach everybody, as her eponymous label could have a luxe quality yet with more prêt-à-porter price tags. “I want to make sure that we are offering something that is exciting and unique and new, but also the point of this brand is that it connects to everyone. I’m not making something that has got a crazy high price point. I want to make sure it’s something that is speaking to just everyone on the street,” she said.

Wear your Gucci jackets in three ways

Fashion Trends

gucci2

At his second showing of Gucci’s ready-to-wear collection, Alessandro Michele sent a series of intricately-woven Gucci jackets parading down the Spring/Summer 2016 runway that was positively kaleidoscopic, leaving show goers with an aftertaste of saccharine posies.

Emulating 70s zeitgeist, the collection was quaintly nostalgic. Although intricate embroideries on a tough pair of leather jacket and rosy weavings on a man’s blazer would be thought of as contemporary sartorial feats, the companionship of sepia-filtered sunglasses brought us right back to the grounds of Woodstock.

gucci1

There are no qualms then, that Alessandro Michele held no reservations in letting his zany creative loose this time round. Bomber jackets paid homage to the house’s notable red and green combo, lavished with interlaces that are so meticulously achieved you won’t be able to pick a thread out of it even if you tried.

Everything But The…

On blustery Summer days, wear your medium weight jacket like you would wear your shirts; however, ensure that the cut is tasteful and not too telling of the lingerie you’ve chosen for the day.

tip1

Size ‘Em Up

If you are investing in a lightweight bomber jacket this Summer, get it in a size bigger. That way, when frigid weather comes around, constricting layers will be the least of your consternation!

tip2

Draping It

Heavyweight jackets aren’t inexorably barred from Summer fashion because there’s a trick to pulling them off in the heat — drape them over your shoulders with zero fuss till Winter calls for a thicker husk!

Alexa Chung is launching her own collection- Alexachung- so what can we expect?

Fashion Trends

We've had Alexa Chung for M&S, Alexa Chung for AG jeans and Alexa Chung for Madewell. Then there was the smash hit 'Alexa' Mulberry bag released in 2009, and not forgetting the countless, 'I want what Alexa Chung's wearing' moments. Today comes the next stage in Chung's quest for world wardrobe domination; a collection all of her own which will be called Alexachung. 

This is what we know so far about Alexachung. The collection will be 'contemporary' prices, which means somewhere between high street and designer. Chung told Business of Fashion that, “I’m not making something that has got a crazy high price point. I want to make sure its something that is speaking to just everyone on the street.” 

Pencil the launch date May 2017 in your diary now when you'll be able to buy Alexachung at Matchesfashion.com, Selfridges, MyTheresa, Galeries LaFayette and SSENSE. Chung, 32, has already hired a design team of six who have backgrounds in music, art and fashion. One of her team, Edwin Bodson, comes from Haider Ackerman, a Parisian brand which fashion insiders love for its cool tailoring and easy opulence (which are incidentally also big features in Chung's own wardrobe).
