  • About Temperley

    Temperley London celebrates its 10th anniversary year in 2011 with its namesake creative director, Alice Temperley, MBE, heading up the House of Temperley with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.

    Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British; Temperley is the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.

    Following the success of the launch collection in 2000 at London Fashion Week, the first Temperley London boutique opened in 2001 on Colville Mews in Notting Hill, London where the head office and design rooms are still situated.

    This year sees the first year anniversary of ALICE by Temperley, a contemporary sister line created to fulfill a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market.

  • Bridal has grown to be an important part of the Temperley offering after the first bridal dresses were created following Alice’s own wedding to Lars Von Bennigsen, the CEO of Temperley Ltd, in 2002. There are now exclusive Bridal Salons in the London Mews and Los Angeles, Melrose Avenue stores with a full bridal collection of bespoke, made-to-order and current collection pieces, for private appointments only.

    The House of Temperley has also expanded into lifestyle with Temperley scented candles and has plans to move into homewear, menswear and childrenswear.

    The House produces 13 collections a year including; Cruise and Pre-Fall across the Temperley London and diffusion ALICE by Temperley line and 2 made-to-order bridal collections a year and key collaborations with leading British names such as the launch of Barbour Gold Label by Temperley in 2011.

  • The company operates 3 stand alone stores in London, Los Angeles and Dubai, and online stores for both lines at: temperleylondon.com and alicebytemperley.com. The lines are also currently available in over 200 doors across 35 countries worldwide.

    The past ten years have earned the House of Temperley critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world, dressing Royalty to the red carpet. Amongst many others, Temperley London fans include; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Reese Witherspoon and Claudia Schiffer. ALICE by Temperley has been worn by a range of fans including Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Beyonce, Rihanna and Dakota Fanning.

  • While constantly being expanded in breadth, the House of Temperley always stays true to its philosophy; appreciating what women want with creations that exist outside of the trend of the moment and always flavoured with a sense of Alice’s individual ‘magpie’ style.

    The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.

Victoria Beckham Debut’s Her Spring 2012 Collection At New York Fashion Week

14 Sep

The timing of Victoria Beckham‘s catwalk show at New York fashion week on Sunday was undeniably awkward. The scheduled start of 10am allocated to Beckham by the organisers saw her Spring 2012 collection take to the catwalk while Barack Obama was leading the nation in remembrance at the World Trade Centre site.

However, the potential for upset was elegantly avoided. Attendees were instructed to arrive early, so that the silences at 9.59am and 10.03am could be properly respected.

The show marked a gear change for Beckham’s feted second career as a designer. Figure-flattering, modern-ladylike, cleverly constructed dresses have been the heart of her brand since her first collection, and were still there – but the focus was pulled back to include a wider range of looks: oversized parka-style jackets, looser pieces, and utility detailing.

The staging of the show also reflected a move away from the tight focus on a singular look. Previously, Beckham had staged small-scale presentations of her collections, which she talked through in person. Her shows were held first in a hotel room, then in recent seasons in a private townhouse. This show was in the New York public library and soundtracked by loud music, and marked a leap in scale which seemed to display a new confidence.

The change in direction may also be designed to cede some space in the limelight to Beckham’s new lower-priced line, Victoria by Victoria Beckham, which she will launch on Monday. The few pieces that have so far been seen from the Victoria line have had a “cocktail dress” look.

Stretch fabrics, exposed zips, flat shoes and high-energy navy-and-orange colour combinations suggested Beckham had finally succumbed to the appeal of the sporty Californian lifestyle. When she arrived in LA, she was teased for wearing high heels to throw the first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers game – to which she replied: “I hate working out. Maybe it’s the whole getting sweaty thing, but it’s just not me.”

Yesterday she described her working method as “like juggling glass balls” and said the arrival of baby daughter Harper two months ago was a blessing in disguise for the collection, “because it made us very focused, and that influenced the collection”.

Handbags, a recent addition to the label, were prominent on the catwalk. The signature Victoria bag has been, the designer said, “squished up, to make it practical and looser”. The result on the catwalk was a chic, two-tone handbag with a sleek, understated feel, which falls in line with the minimalist diktats of recent Paris fashion weeks.

Designer Cynthia Rowley Spring 2012 Fashion Show During Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

Cynthia Rowley is over the understated muse the fashion world rallied behind during the recession. She’s ready for flash — and flowers.

The collection she presented Friday on a full-on mirrored runway at New York Fashion Week was about “the optical exuberance of gold,” Rowley said in her notes. She threw in “flash mobs of florals and animated shapes.”

The outfits certainly had spunk; no shrinking violet is going to wear an Asian-inspired “bouquet” tuxedo jacket with second-skin leggings in a zigzag print.

From there, Rowley moved on to a mesh leather T-shirt with tight, tiny trunks, and a metallic sweater with gold shorts adorned with black appliques.

Rowley seemed to tap into her personal interest in surfing, pairing embroidered swim trunks with an orange T that had perforated leather sleeves.

Some looks had more of a balance of boldness and wearability, including a botanical-print dress with a henley-style neckline, and a gray sweatshirt-style top worn with a black skirt that teased the crowd of editors, stylists and retailers at the Lincoln Center tents with a printed lining that would peek out as the model walked the runway.

Dressier outfits included the finale, dubbed “a forced perspective dress,” which featured a short-yet-full — and flirty — A-line bottom.

Lindsay Lohan, wearing big sunglasses, sparkly high heels and a brand new outfit from Rowley, nodded approvingly throughout the show.
