Temperley Spring 2017 - Runway Review
September 18, 2016
Romance remains at the heart of any Temperley collection. Chock full of sunrise and sunset colors, spring was a further ode to that bohemian luxe that has become a signature of the soft brand—a nod to her self-described “Temperley tribe.”
Transported to the beach, her models wore day dresses, in a kaleidoscope of prints and embroideries, that offered something for every woman: sheer-printed with full sleeves; Empire waist and halter styles in flowy fabrics or sturdier cotton ones that marked her move away from art deco-inspired prints and more prim numbers done in cotton with short sleeves. Some had a thick ruffle around the edge, while others glinted with gold thread or subtle embellishments.
Temperley sent out wide-leg trousers and rainbow sequined jumpsuits, too, while a denim jacket boasted swirls of multicolored embroidery. For evening, the designer showed a terrific lineup of iridescent sequin dresses and tiered maxi skirts, not to mention a glittery jumpsuit in beachy, bleached-out hues of pure sunshine.
