I first met Alexa when I was preparing a story about women who love a piece of clothing so much, they buy it over and over again – true collectors. Alexa loves white blouses. After I finished the story, I decided: I’ll have to come back one day and take pictures of the other clothes she loves.

A year later it’s finally happened. And it turns out: Alexa has a lot of love. For college sweaters. For Ikat scarves. For bright jeans. Behind every door we opened in her closet was another collection. I mean, you don’t just need one striped shirt. You need many, because they are all COMPLETELY different from each other. I get that. Although, looking at her closet, I did consider asking her if she wouldn’t mind me shopping her collection of hippie dresses. Surely, she wouldn’t miss one…

Actually, I want to go shopping pretty much every time I see her. I need petrol jeans. Right now! Even though I hadn’t spent much time thinking about petrol jeans before. It’s because of the way she wears her clothes: with self-confidence. And a little bit of self-irony. Excuse me, of course I’m wearing a fur gilet paired with chinos, a checked shirt and neon trainers! She radiates her love for fashion, how much fun it is to have fun with it, and maybe that explains why I’ve never seen Alexa wear anything that wasn’t somehow wonderful.

She’s a surfer who can spot a pair of Isabel Marant pumps from 200 meters. A hippie girl in Chanel sandals. Someone who’ll get just as excited about a pair of Victoria Beckham jeans as about a crochet blouse bought on holiday in Bali.

She is also a designer herself and makes the beautiful bracelets you see in the picture below for her own label vonhey. You can see more of the other things she loves on her blog Alexa Peng.

So, from her surfboard to her collection of lucky charm sea urchins, a romantic blouse from Verena von Pufendorf to her catty Chanel purse, from her scarves to her jeans – these are some of Alexa’s favourite things:

      Hallo Helena! Ich mag ihren Stil auch SEHR, ich hoffe, das sieht man den Bildern an. College-Pullis mit Chanel zu kombinieren gelingt eben nicht jeder Frau, aber Alexa eben doch.
