Alice Temperley Will Wrap You Up For Day and Gild You For Night
Backstage at her show, Alice Temperley extolled the virtues of a beautiful evening coat, and there were plenty on display from Temperley London for Autumn/Winter 2015. Either hitting the knee or skimming the floor, the wide-sleeved designs in signature prints or metallic textures topped a series of sheer embroidered gowns in shades of blue and teal, ethereal white frocks, and wide-leg trousers. Veteran models Sophie Dahl and Jacquetta Wheeler were welcome additions to the lineup, dressed in velvet and sequins respectively. For evening, there was plenty of sparkle in both gold and bronze, in the form of slip dresses, evening suits, and scarves. For day, look out for knitted dresses and trousers, button details, and burnout velvet . . . or just invest in one of Temperley's beloved chunky menswear-inspired scarves, and throw it over your current wardrobe for an instant update.
