Fashion Review: Motel Rocks!


Motel, Punk, Left-Field, Retro & Fun-Filled ‘Killer-Style’ Clothing

Rifling through the fabulous thrift stores of the West Coast of the States all the way back in 1999, the Motel crew was struck by something. A realisation spoke to them; the UK needed a vintage-inspired, prints-driven brand to sink their hungry for innovative fashion teeth into. Motel was born, creating classy and stunningly-crafted tops, trousers, dresses and skirts in a huge array of styles and with an ever-expanding list of inspirations.

While the name Motel may conjure up images of seedy establishments to some, it also calls to mind classic, affordably-priced American living and décor, which is where Motels come in. The brand provides the young British fashionista with a veritable thrift-store feel that looks great, fits fabulously, and does not cost the earth.

Motel feels no need to splatter their name across the chest of their clothes in an inane effort to get more punters; they need no gimmicks or tricks for the crowds to come flocking. But instead Motel just keeps on reinventing vintagewear to create punk, left-field, retro and fun-filled ‘killer-style’.

Maybe this is why Motel has fast been discovered by ‘a-la-mode’ style magazines such as WAD and why weekly sightings can be found in the best fashion titles; Grazia,Cosmopolitan, Harpers Bazaar, In-Style, Now,Reveal and Look to name a few. Then there are the fashion elite who continue to track Motel down; supermodels Gisele, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell are all fans, along with fashion lovers Peaches Geldoff and Fern Cotton, while modish musician supporters include Duffy,Kate Nash, the Saturdays, Bo Pepper,New Young Pony Club,Ida Maria, Robyn, Diana Vickers,Alexandra Burkeand the Ting Tings!

Motel are quickly becoming a powerhouse of the fashion market, and what’s more they are doing so by not taking themselves too seriously, a brand unafraid of excess, always moving forward ready to inspire you to add a bit more quirk into your wardrobe.

Love Motel Rocks

The Samba dress is a black dress with fringing detail around the bust and back. This strapless, figure hugging dress is made from a soft jersey cotton so its easy to wear, comfortable but still looks amazing.

The samba dress is a great party dress with fierce style, perfect for the dancefloor. This dress would be suitable worn with high heels and lots of vintage gold jewellry, for a powerfull stunning outfit.










Roll Tee with Owl
£25.00
the Owl print Tee has rolled sleeves and a real 90's feel. The print has a galaxy/dip dyed look to it mixing bright and dark colours, this vintage style tee looks amazing at the back where the colours merge together so be sure to check out the additional pictures. This roll sleeved tee has the graphics of an owl on the front giving the tee a unique and original look. This tee is made from cotton jersey so it is comfortable next to the skin and has a soft touch. The tee is longer than an average tee so can be worn (as pictured) with leggings as a dress. It has a grungie style so would look great worn with a denim jacket or denim shirt worn over the top.















Printed Leggings
£19.00
These are the motel printed leggings, they come in the stunning blue snake skin print. The printed leggings have a real 80's feel. These snake skin leggings come in a cotton jersey fabric so they are really stretchy so the comfort factor will not be a problem. They look great worn with a black top and black high heels, wear with your favourite black long vest top to copy our models look, would also look great worn with the motel long black cardigan with pockets. Wear out to a club and everyone will be asking where you got them from. If you want to be different but without being daring these are the leggings for you, order today and you wont be dissapointed.
