    Picture this: You're shopping, when suddenly you're drawn to a really great-looking, cozy sweater. You pick it up, turn it around, and find some unexpected standout detailing on that back that instantly exalts this piece to must-buy status. That's pretty much how we feel about every look in Love, Zooey's fall '13 line.

    Don't worry, these pieces are just as wearable as those from past collections, but designer Grace Chon-Hoffer has thrown some unexpected twists into the mix. Needless to say, we approve of every oversized pocket and extra panel of peplum.

    While the label may be based in L.A., Chon-Hoffer looked to Antwerp photographer Jan Kempenaers for inspiration. Her snapshots of deserted monuments in the former Yugoslavia region sparked ideas for structure and geometric prints, while nature's elements brought about a neutral color palette (think heather gray, burnt orange, and olive, with pops of powder and royal blue).

    Check out the lookbook ahead, and let us know if you're as delightfully surprised as we are by that asymmetrical, yet elegant, blazer. And, how about those leather-meets-wool jackets that are lined with a second layer, so you don't have to double up like you did last season?

    Don't get us wrong, we're excited spring's finally here, but we having no problem daydreaming of fall.
