First Look: Madewell’s Long and Loose Fall 2011 Collection

By

Madewell previewed their fall collection this morning in a retro-inspired office setting, scattering colorful desk supplies and a toy-stocked vending machine among clothes and accessories. Fall 2011 ushers in a slouchy silhouette and a slew of mix-and-match textures: Nubby, loose knits and boyfriend cardigans were paired with gauzy skirts, while checkered and chambray button-downs were layered with silk shirtdresses. Expanding upon last winter’s furry accessories, this collection offers horsehair pumps alongside the brand’s staple wood-heeled booties and leather loafers. Like the makeshift office space, fits were also vintage-inspired: Following the maxis of spring, skirts are long and loose and denim is flared. Click ahead to see more of what’s in store for fall.
