Temperley London - London Spring 2009
(LONDON) For Spring 2009, Alice Temperley decided to take a "Romantic Odyssey," an appropriate title for a show she has moved back to London after several seasons in New York. The collection was inspired by the age of Enchantment in post-Victorian Britain, where there was a reaction against the restraint of the times and a movement towards color and light, inspired by characters of the time such as Beardsley and Chaplin. This translated itself into fashion with uber-feminine dresses—the Dana dress, which emerged in varying lengths and colors, boasted an extravagant bow on one shoulder; the Glade dress had a goddess-y feel to it and the final looks were completely in bloom. Colors ranged from blacks and creams to vibrant pomegranate and sapphire shades and blouses and trousers had a fluid ethereal feel. Accessories included studded star-shaped belts and large floral headpieces, while the latter part of the collection included toughened-up pieces like a medival leather waist-coat and chainmail tunic.
