The Alice by Temperley Spring Summer 2011 Collection

ALICE by Temperley Spring/Summer 2011 is inspired by the last Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, a young woman who set Versailles ablaze with her mischievous sensibility, taste for the decadent, and hunger for romance. The collection imagines Marie Antoinette in a modern day setting, putting a streetwise spin on past centuries’ French fashion. It turns a classic toile du jour print into a playful cotton playsuit and mixes motorcycle leather with peasant-inspired cross-stitch blouses. The collection features a breezy soft palette of whites, creams, blushes, nudes and silvery grays given a 21st century zing with an injection of hot pink. Gauzy maxi dresses, soft appliquéd tulles, diaphanous sheer jacquards and intricately hand embroidered cottons give a faded feminine elegance while black and tan leather separates offer an antidote to the ultra soft femininity. A more luxe element is evident this season with trademark Temperley embellishment given a fresh ALICE perspective. Hand pleated rosettes, dresses graphically decorated with bold metal components and playful bow details give a rich new take on the ALICE line. Textures are key, ranging from super soft clipped jacquards and cotton cut throughs to lace paneling on stretch bodycon silhouettes. Drapey jersey is manipulated into intricate body hugging wraps and 18th century frills decorate cuffs. Spring/Summer 2011 is a modern day Marie Antoinette with 21st attitude, a strong collection of multi functional separates and signature dresses.

The Alice by Temperley Autumn Winter 2010 Collection

The Autumn/Winter 2010 ALICE by Temperley collection is a paean to the English eclectic, a youthful remix of the magpie style that is as much a tradition in England as tea and cake and cricket. The ALICE AW10 collection is full of graphic abstract and ethnic prints, military silhouettes and embellishment and rich textures of velvet and hammered satin. Vintage drawing room sophistication is summoned in tailored waistcoats and draped jerseys. A bit of punk sneers back in studs and denim. Intarsia-knit tunic dresses and crop tops capture the insouciance of England’s Bohemia, from Hampstead Heath to Bloomsbury Square to Carnaby Street to Hoxton.

The Alice by Temperley Cruise 2010 Collection

Combining both African and military inspirations, the ALICE by Temperley Cruise 2010 collection contains a multitude of pattern, texture and detail. Colours range from soft safari inspired neutrals to bright chilli, coral and cobalt. An African inspired print offers a modern take on traditional African dress while a monochrome “Wing Print” offers a soft, ethereal print for the summery part of the collection. Embellishments are modern, opulent and jewellery-esque and placed onto structured silhouettes. The casual element of the collection is soft and safari inspired, reminiscent of the 1920’s-40s Africa and “White Mischief” golden era. Safari and hunting and influences see cotton twill and, soft, drapey silk cotton separates perfectly paired back to printed t shirts or cotton, pin tucked shirting. The collection is pepped up with embellished black denim and biker/military inspired leather pieces.
