First Look At Dallin Chase's Fall Collection

dallin-lookbook-1
We've always wondered what it would be like to be an explorer—hiking misty ancient ruins in Peru or navigating the green currents of the Mekhong in Cambodia just sounds so fantastically cool. Our fantasies end once fashion comes into play: Bulky fleeces and clunky hiking boots don't quite scream Out of Africa. Lucky for us, New York designer Jason Cauchi is putting a new spin on adventure chic with his fall '10 collection for Dallin Chase . We've always been a fan of the former Alice Roi creative director, whose silky-soft biker jackets never go out of fashion, but his new collection really ramps up the style quotient to create a line for the 21st-century girl just longing for adventure. We can imagine channeling our inner Amelia Earhart in the chunky open-knit sweater, or exploring uncharted ground in the U.N.-gone-glam linen version of the traditional 3-piece suit. For the less pioneering, slip on the giraffe-print bustier dress to go Serengeti, NYC style, or just throw on their extra-long safari vest over the sequined cocktail dress, it will make everyone wonder where you're off to next.
