We may be in the midst of summer – and a particularly sweltering one at that – but true fashion lovers are always looking one season ahead. Accordingly, Motel’s Fall 2010 lookbook piqued our interest when it arrived last week, thanks in part to its decidedly summer feel. That’s right; for fall, Motel has put together an exciting mix of knit dresses, cropped sweaters and bodysuits that, while cozy and comfortable, will make you feel like summer is still lingering in the background. According to Motel, the fall collection was inspired by a slew of sources – from punk to retro – and is intended as an antidote to fall’s dreariness.
The dresses are never plain – instead, they are finished with bustier cups, oversized polka dots, mesh panels, a smattering of pearl studs, or printed with pastel photographs and neon feather patterns. Jackets – mostly cropped – are adorned with leopard print or jumbo gold buttons, while coats are given a military-chic twist or a dash of faux leopard fur.
Motel’s Fall 2010 collection will hit stores like Urban Outfitters and Karmaloop within the next few months. Of course, you can also purchase it from MotelRocks.com and receive free shipping to the USA!
