Alexa Chung Wants to Do a Second Madewell Line, Has a New TV Show — Thrift America


>> Fans
of Alexa Chung's Madewell collection: there's hope for a second round. When asked whether it was a possibility, Chung told The New York Times: “I hope so. They sent me nice flowers for my birthday.”

She's also got a new TV series coming out on PBS next Summer — "Thrift America" — which follows Chung and Maya Singer (the series creator and Style.com's editor of special projects) as they comb "consignment shops, garage sales, and flea markets for old clothing, furniture, music equipment, and other potential treasures to use in various creative endeavors" — in what is painted like a fashion version of "Antiques Roadshow" mashed together with “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations.”

On the show's itinerary are Orlando, Detroit, Nashville, Alabama, Brooklyn, as well as Paris and London, and in the first episode, Chung helps Pamela Love create a pop-up shop for London Fashion Week. Essentially, as Singer describes it, the idea is to show viewers firsthand, “What does Alexa Chung pull out of the crap bin at the yard sale?”
