ALEXACHUNG Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
When touching upon the narrative of dystopia, the tragedy has to be implied, not showcased unto the clothes. Unfortunately, such was the case of Alexa Chung's Fall 2019 collection. Her impeccable styling did not save the show that had no cohesion, had many low-quality garments, and was simply confusing to observe from beginning to end.

After having recently watched a rerun of the classic 80s film “Terminator,” Alexa Chung presented a dystopic yet stylish view of the future in her Fall 2019 show. Dubbed “Off the Grid, But Not for Long,” she combined the edginess of the 80s with her own sense of prairie femininity, which in part, is a bit akin to another dystopic program, “The Handmade’s Tale.” While her efforts were considerable, dystopic or not, a lot of her looks were quite tragic, particularly satin pieces that had a certain luster to them that was relatively old—as if this was the first time they were taken out of the attic and had a good wash. The shimmer didn’t help conceal the unflattering nature of her cuts, which at times ventured between the 1980s and 1940s. Perhaps the saving grace in this collection were the knits, fine pieces that fit the body well and were colorful enough to evoke contemporary appeal. Had Chung focused on this side of the line rather than working on another narrative, this would have been a better show.
