Temperley London Pre-Fall 2012

Alice Temperley's Pre-Fall 2012 collection embraces all that is feminine and luxurious. Grand tailoring of the 19th century is modified to suit the 21st century girl. It begins with extravagant sequined dresses in multi-tonal golds, and ladylike lace frocks, elegantly paired with gloves, tasseled minauderie cases and pearl necklaces. It's the kind of collection that any Manhattan maiden and Gossip Girl groupie would revel in.

Temperley chose an understated colour palette, in a blend of rich fabrics, conveying the notion of graceful glamour. The only form of colour comes from pistachio green & the boldest shade of pink, printed on brocade dresses. Leather skinny pants are paired with embroidered longer-length tops. Chunky cardigans and trench coats are a sophisticated way to keep warm while wearing a lavish gown underneath. Black & white frocks are belted with large floral brooches. I have a feeling that those opaque black spotted stockings are going to catch on easily. 

The range concludes with vintage inspired evening gowns, more flowy than fitted and accentuated at the waist. Make-up is focused on a strong red lip and bejeweled headbands adorn a chic updo. I feel like some of these outfits were made with Blair Waldorf in mind, don't you think?

I totally agree with you, if only Eric Daman didn't decide to have pregnant blair wear mumoo's then she would sport one of these fab outfits, they are perfect for her, especially the very first look with the sequined maxi dress, trench coat and chandelier earrings. some of them could be worn by lily van der woodsen as well.
a gorgeous collection all in all.

These are all so beautiful, it is impossible to choose a favorite. Sigh.

I do love the champagne collection. It seems very 1920s-inspired, which I'm obsessing over these days. :)

Loveeeee the fourth dress from the 1st picture! I love the gold colour, I think it looks always really good. And I love black too! It always looks elegant and I believe that's stunning.
Oh! And I don't mind if the dress is long or short, but I feel thatyou'll always stand out if you're wearing anything in black and grey or beige and gold , they're my favourite colours for dressing up! :)
Much love,

I have already said you always have the best selection of clothes... it'll make a hole in my wallet! I loved the green and black satin (if it's satin, looks like) dress and the black circle skirt (that's my style of skirts)!
Really an amazing collection! Very soon I'll be in London... can't wait to see the collection there!
