A new day for Spring ‘15…
Focusing on daywear and embracing a whole new attitude, the Spring ‘15 collection utilises layering, showcases separates and presents an unexpected approach to dressing effortlessly.
For Spring ‘15 Alice was inspired by a photography book she found at Portobello Market, which influenced a crisp, fresher feel with a graphic look in its details and patterning. Seydou Keita could ‘electrify’ a picture by mixing multiple and clashing geometrics within one photograph. Keita was also fascinated with the idea of ornamentation, an aesthetic similar to that of Alice’s. These photographs heavily inspired the textile design of the collection, with fabrics including jacquards, appliqué and broderieanglaise delicately executed with a feminine and fresh approach.
Alongside the in-house designed prints, Alice sourced antique Japanese woodblock prints which underpin the entire collection, decorated with hand painted moths, butterflies and insects that are digitally engineered and perfectly placed to frame the body in true Temperley style.
Tailoring is key for Spring ‘15 with three piece suits playing an important role in creating daytime chic, worn as a set or mixed as separates the pieces are made from textured Italian jacquard and Prince of Wales check. For a strong tailored look, the suits are perfectly paired with signature Temperley crisp cotton shirts that showcase a fresh silhouette.
Japanese painting influenced the colour palette, mixing light corals and blues with graphic indigo, whites and blacks.
‘To create the strong feel of the collection I drew inspiration from the photographs of Helmut Newton and Carlo Mollino who create ‘powerful’ women that embody a sexier attitude. I want the Temperley woman for Spring to playwith layers, embrace colour and wear each piece with confidence.’ Alice Temperley MBE
