Lookbook ::: Motel ::: Flashback to dancefloor beats

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 8, 2010

If you happened to grow up in the 80s and 90s like I did, looking at Motel’s new collection will feel like a flashback into adolescence. A time of carelessness, first crushes, confusion, dreams and of course: 90210. I’ve felt drawn back into the turn of the last decade of the 1900s for quite some time now. Lot’s of lycra, golden jewelry and heavy ‘Tank Girl’ inspired boots meet floral prints and oversized shirts. GOOOSSSHHH I can’t stop smiling thinking about the fun we had with music choices ranging from Eurodance to NKOTB dancing in our parents’ garages pretending we were the next Salt’N’Pepa.

…Coolin’ by day then at night working up a sweat
C’mon girls, let’s go show the guys that we know
How to become number one in a hot party show
Now push it… (Salt’N’Pepa, Push It, 1987)
