Temperley’s ‘Grace’ SS12 collection battles a new take on classical
decadent romance. Typical crystal encrusted gowns, beautiful silhouettes,
delicate lace and rich satin sit alongside bold flashes of colour, shots of
animal print, graphic floral’s and quirky fringing bringing a new, fresh focus
to luxury as unique statements collide with gorgeous, feminine shapes for a
timeless but innovative collection.
The collection toys with transparencies, creating exquisite shapes
with body-hugging dresses and tailored shirts complete with French lace and
golden crystal drops. The silhouettes appear elongated, sensual and unique
drawing upon the divide between the typical sights of gentle pearls that become
entwined with satin 70’s headbands and graphic prints.
The colours saw the usual representatives of a sensual, lady like
collection with creams, sweet pastels and gentle nudes that were sliced through
with dramatic navy and harsh whites as Temperely creates a contemporary but yet
traditional take on romance.
Draping’s of silk satin and shimmering sequins teamed with
brilliant, glossy red lips added the perfect edge to highlight Temperley’s
renowned craftsmanship. Fluid, clean lines and classic detail contrasted
against oversized prints, flowing kimono capes and new colours finish this
ultra glamorous, elegant collection that casts a thrilling new light on tradition.
