Temperley London Spring 2014
Alice Temperley looked to Sicily for inspiration for Spring 2014, but a rehash of last year's Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian love-in this was not. There was less of the ornate gold but more texture and print. The feeling was relaxed elegance with trapeze shapes, volume, and a soft colour palette that included burgundy, lilac, mint, black, and white, plus the requisite pink we've already seen so much of on the London runways. A petal print that merged into leopard spots was a standout, as were laser-cut hems with embroidered trims. Every camera in the place came out for a full black skirt covered in textured blooms teamed with an open-back silk tee.
