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.
