Temperley London Fall 2019 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Shot on the dreamy Cornish estate that is Port Eliot, this Temperley London collection was loaded with looks for languid ladies of the manor to wear while surveying their fortunes. These ranged from stately chatelaine-appropriate attire to racier adventuress equipment, all perfumed with a sense of pre-war playfulness. Alice Temperley said, “I wanted it to be heady and rich and highly enjoyable—a little bit decadent with an increase in volume.”

Chinoiserie-inspired flourishes, feathers, and florals featured in print or embellishment on sumptuously proper evening gowns, draped with bows or bolstered by caped sleeves, in hammered silk and crepe. Sharply cut, strong-shouldered tailoring with wide-legged pants in billiard-table green velvet and robe coats—reminiscent of an old-school menswear smoking jacket—in leopard-print silk or wool were fit for modern-day Lady Julia Flytes to prang their cars in. Many-ruffled mid-length dresses in sequin panels of stretch tulle were pitted against kick-ass stomp-y boots for houseguests with attitude. Temperley is continuing her project to refine the mechanics of her company to fit today’s business landscape while retaining her knack for pretty—but never prissy—womenswear pieces.
