England is not especially renowned for its summers, which explains the allure of popular British holiday destinations of such far-flung places as Orlando, Lisbon, and Faro. Still, there is something to be said of the British summer, which is celebrated in the July 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK by its cover star Alexa Chung. The style icon, face of Longchamp, is celebrated for her English style, which is equal parts graceful and intelligent with dashes of irreverence. For her two covers photographed by David Slijper and styled the Leith Clark (newsstand and subscriber editions), Alexa wears Burberry Prorsum and Simone Rocha.
