Floor-sweeping silk gowns trimmed with lace and tulle.
The look Temperley London celebrated its 10th anniversary by showing in London rather than New York. The collection moved away from designer Alice Temperley’s boho roots for a more sophisticated and elegant collection of floor-sweeping silk gowns trimmed with lace and tulle. Necklines varied from high to strapless and one-shoulder.
Key pieces A sheer, long-sleeved maxi dress had high impact, as did a black strapless silk satin gown with a soft pink panelled skirt that kicked out from the thigh to give a 1920s silhouette.
Commercial appeal The collection highlighted trends such as sheer sleeves, liquid silk and a long, lean silhouette. Some of the more wearable dresses were cut above the knee. The completely sheer dresses will be harder to wear, though may influence panelling or trims.
