ALICE by Temperley is a contemporary sister line of Temperley London created to fulfil a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market. Named after the label’s creative director, the ALICE by Temperley collection offers easy to wear pieces in a variety of fabrics from knits and jersey to lace, silk and leather. It also incorporates strong separates, casual daywear, knitwear, statement jackets, evening dresses, accessories and outerwear.
Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British. Her highly-regarded style has earned her a reputation as the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.
Temperley’s designs are influenced by her childhood upbringing in Somerset, her love of bold jewellery and her travels to Asia and Africa which lend to the focus on intricate detail in her clothes, along with femininity and elegance which is distinctly recognisable.
There is no need to say much about Temperley’s influence. Just take a look at some of the celebrity figures who adore the label – Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton, Rihanna, Beyonce, Jessica Alba, and Lana del Rey. That’s already a brilliant testimony.
The ALICE by Temperley AW12 collection will be available at Zalora in November 2012.
