The resultant collection is elegant, sensual and ultra glamorous.
A play on transparencies is combined with a supremely feminine silhouette that is both elongated and body conscious. Soft tuxedo looks are given a twist, with tailored satins that sit alongside crystal encrusted gowns, creating a synergy between both day and evening and giving the collection a new focus on luxury.
Fluid, lean lines have been juxtaposed with draped kimono capes in oversized floral prints and fine form-hugging knitwear detailed with golden crystal droplets. Delicate fringed cocktail dresses and transparent slip dresses in panelled French lace and chiffon display classic Temperley details and craftsmanship .
A recognisably Temperley colour palette of creams, soft nudes, pistachio and lemon is shot through with graphic navy and white.
The result is a decadent, high octane collection of timeless pieces that are integrally Temperley in celebration of their tenth anniversary.
