Motel Rocks AW12 Press Day

Hey Lovelies!

So today I had the pleasure of popping along to the Motel Rocks A/W Press Day.

Motel is a brand I always check out when I’m looking for something special or if I want an outfit with a bit of ‘wow’ so I was super excited to see what they had to offer in the A/W collection with Christmas, New Year and *cough cough* a little old 21st birthday coming up in December, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed.

I was greeted by the lovely Natasha and Selina from the Motel team, and Selina kindly talked me through the whole collection, explaining where the inspirations for each aspect of the collection came from and the different cuts and silhouettes. 

An eclectic mix of prints and patterns.

I love this optical illusion dress! It’s such a flattering pattern, it gives the illusion of curves in the right places.

The new collection is full of so many great prints in Motel’s signature styles such as the Gina dress and Jordan jeans.

The Jordan jeans get a winter garden makeover.

I think this digital print is such a cute twist to winter floral, especially on the flirty silhouette of the Pearl dress.

The ultimate wow high-waisted leopard print shorts.

The baroque embroidery on this velvet Gina dress gives it such an added opulence.

It wouldn’t be a Christmas collection without sequins and sparkle!

A 90s grunge take on purple, the colour of the season FYI ;)

Let you wild side out, festive style.

This set reminded me of mermaids, so cute and aquatic!

Maybe my favourite high-street leather jacket ever?

Sequins galore! Also the dress on the left is friggin’ amazing, I’m pretty sure Selina may have thought I was a bit weird as I kept touching it, but believe me, you would too! So basically it’s a three way dress, you can push all the sequins one way to make it gold, the other way to make it blue, or different ways to make it a combination of both colours like it is in the picture. It’s not called the Magic dress for nothing!

Indie jewellery brand Rock n Rose, available on the Motel Website

I’m so impressed with this collection and can’t wait for it to hit the web in September.

What do you think of the new collection?

Love Keeks xo
