LFW: Temperley London S/S 2013

The Spring 2013 'Temperley London' collection by Alice Temperley debuted today at London Fashion Week. After seeing her collection for John Lewis, I was particularly impressed by Alice Temperely's way of representing femininity in a playful and sexy way and this collection confirms this. After being particularly popular with both Kate and Pippa Middleton, Alice Temperley's collection certainly impressed me. 

Her inspiration was the 1950s glamour era and she has paid tribute to the couture models of the time as being her guiding inspiration for this collection. “I like to work with a timeless mixture of contrasting influences. I had visions of a late 1950s couture model or a young Sophia Loren, but also modernising the Temperley Woman making her uncomplicated and effortlessly beautiful. I wanted to maintain a balance between refined elegance and modernity" to put it precisely. 


Here we see a dress with a structured, satin bodice and sheer fabric for the legs. The dress is elegant yet modern with the horizontal stripes.


Again, we see horizontal stripes on a navy jumpsuit. This look is more casual but can easily work as an evening look.


 I love this look, I think the short cape works well with the patterned evening dress.


A glamorous and timeless look. A tight bodice with a pleated skirt. The shade of blue that's used here is a gorgeous shade of icy blue, not seen it much in the other collections so it's a nice fit here.


A jewel-encrusted dress which  accentuates the female figure.


A shimmering silver top with flowy, pearl trousers. Classic.


More wide brim hats are seen along with a black halter-neck dress and the sheer net detailing for the bottom half. A high-fashion beach look?
