Temperley London Fall 2008
Where & When: Wednesday, February 6th at 7 p.m. in the Tent, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Alice Temperley is known for her girly, party-friendly frocks, and for fall, she took her collection a step further. Inspired by Mata Hari, the famous 20th century spy, Temperley balanced feminine tiered-ruffle skirts with very masculine military-inspired jackets, topped off with admiral caps and glittery thigh-high boots. The resulting looks were a bit vampy, but intriguing. The palette was mostly black and white, with hints of red and lime green. With all the talk of waist-definition, I admire Temperley for sticking to her guns and sending out several empire-waist silhouettes.
Standout Look: Lime green is not an easy color to wear, but the sequined lace trim and ruffles make this dress (on Lily Donaldson) an adventurous look worthy of a rendez-vous with a double agent.
Bonus Points: The Temperley show started super-late, but the heckling photographers made the wait an amusing one.
Where to Buy: net-a-porter.com, the Temperley boutique at 453 Broome Street in Soho
