In other words,

1) a is in scope per http://eel.is/c++draft/basic.scope.pdecl#1
2) a.x has been completely initialized per

The initialization is well-formed, legal, and does what you expect.
The earlier statements about designated initializers
do not apply, but if we choose to modify the example to use designated
initializers, it still works:

struct {
  int x;
  int y;
} a{.x = 42, .y = a.x};
