There seems to be a lot of new talent from Spain popping up in the childrenswear scene lately. About a month or so ago I discovered a wonderful new brand based out of Sevilla called, Motoreta. Architects/Mothers Cristina Lopez-Lago and Maria Llerena are at the helm of this new project. The duo have joined the increasingly popular “Slow Fashion Movement”. The modern collection of clothing and accessories is produced in Andalusia Spain, helping to nourish and sustain the local industry.
Motoreta is making a strong debut with SS/14 dubbed “At Home”. The collection for boys and girls ranges from size 1-11 years. Inspired by film, literature and art there is a fun whimsical theme. There is a consistent frill detail on some of the dresses & shirts that I adore, exaggerated a bit on the polka-dot/salmon dress which is a nice contrast to the simple shape. Polka-dots, stripes and a checker board pattern are combined with peter pan collars, piping on button down shirts/dresses, necktie bows and criss-cross open backs. Very playful but chic at the same time. Basic silhouettes with subtle infusions of flare for SS/14, we can’t wait to see what Motoreta comes up with next!
