Fall 2010 is shaping up to be a fantastic season, with designers working an expansive range of styles for women. From urban layers that channel an updated ’90s grunge vibe to luxurious suiting, ladies will have the opportunity to change looks often and still be on-trend. But the best part of the upcoming season is checking out the new lines Denver’s retailers are bringing to town. Here’s a look at just a few of the collections we’re excited to see this fall:
New York designer Richard Chai’s secondary line—Love—arrives courtesy of fashion-forward Greenwood Village boutique A.Line. His grunge-inspired fall collection features outstanding jackets (pictured) and long skirts, along with layered T-shirts and knitwear.

The Row, the Olsen twins’ primary collection of minimal, beautifully cut pieces, is finally coming to the Mile High City.
