Temperley London Spring/Summer 2018

Temperley London 

Spring/Summer Collection 2018 - London Fashion Week

Alice Temperley’s latest collection screams 1950’s French Riviera.

Think Audrey Hepburn taking a stroll along the Promenade de la Croisette in the South of France. The elegant silhouette (a signature characteristic of all Temperley’s collections), the simple pastel blue pattern, the halter neck, the length, the pinched waist...but- hold the phone- the chilli red geometric prints and sheer panels demonstrate that this is no dated piece but in fact, the epitome of that iconic phrase 'classic with a modern twist'.

It's all part of Temperley’s new aesthetic in the face of fashion critics stating that previous collections were “too pretty” to be considered fashion according to Vogue writer Maya Singer. At the start of the 2018 show, Temperley announced that her collection would be wearable fashion with a bite. It's the patterns, colours and cut that provides the collection with the nostalgic bohemian vibe but Temperley ensures edge through suggestive poppers trailing from hem to the belt or generous sheer panels in the ultimately feminine sun dresses.

However, Temperley’s true break away from her traditional style came later in the collection with her high shine silver metallic bardot jumpsuit and matching coat, Neri pinstripe Kimono and trousers or metallic mini dress with nude tulle extensions which can only be described as futuristic glamour rather than reimagined classic.

Nevertheless, Temperley didn’t forget her roots as her silver-screen siren evening gowns graced the catwalk with custom intricate hand-worked embellishment and sophisticated cuts as seen with her ballerina show dress- a personal favourite.

In conclusion, Temperley’s Spring/Summer collection offers classic, stylish, feminine pieces yet remains bang on trend through the use of transparent panels, eye catching  prints and a dash of dynamic high-fashion items to keep the critics at bay.
