London: In honor of her business’ ten-year anniversary, Alice Temperley brought her show back to London after many seasons in New York. The designer seemed to mark this special occasion with a more dressed-up collection, setting a celebratory mood. Rather than her signature boho aesthetic, the collection had a 1920s feel, with Art Deco motifs, dropped waists and satiny pajama-inspired pieces. A trim tuxedo would have appealed to Marlene Dietrich. Intricate broderie anglaise tops were sweet and prim, and va-va-voom cocktail dresses were a highlight – in particular, a curve-hugging red sheath with flounces festooning one shoulder. This sophisticated new direction for Temperley was a successful one, and the grown-up offerings are sure to appeal to long-time fans of the label.
