Couture comes to the countryside in Alice by Temperley: British designer Alice Temperley's distinctive line of ultra-feminine haute couture. A childhood spent on her parents' cider farm in rural England led Temperley to adopt a dreamy aesthetic that marries elegant fabrics with charming, 1920s-inspired details such as jewels and ribbons. Her eponymous brand Temperley London has earned her numerous awards as well as admirers such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Keira Knightley, and Emilia Fox (who chose Temperley bridal wear for her wedding day). Whether it’s a simple knit jersey dress, a playful leopard-print skirt, or a party frock with an embroidered collar, each piece in the Alice by Temperley line exudes sophistication, romance, and a unique British quirkiness.
Designer Alice Temperley knows what's haute — just take a look at this gorgeous collection full of Grecian-inspired details, sumptuous fabrics, and feminine fits. Whether you prefer a daring silhouette, a bare shoulder, or a perfectly placed frill, you'll find plenty to love in this selection of elegant dresses and separates.
