Temperley London London Fashion Week SS18

Spanish luxury footwear brand Pedro Garcia united with Alice Temperley’s eponymous label, Temperley London, for the British designer’s S/S18 London Fashion Week womenswear show held at Lindley Hall on Sunday September 17th, 2017.

The duo presented a supernal collection of sandals exquisitely crafted from buttery soft nappa leather and delicate grosgrain ribbons in a brilliantly expressive color palette, capturing Temperley London’s eternally effortless, modern bohemian cool.

Commented Temperley, “When I think of Pedro Garcia I think of contemporary, effortless shoes. With their unique experimentation with materials, proportion and color, Summer ’18 seemed like the perfect season to collaborate with Pedro and the team. It was a seamless creative partnership and very enjoyable process.”

Encapsulating the sartorial mood of an escape to the Riviera, the Summer 18 collection suggests days spent poolside, followed by martinis at golden hour. This season offers a contemporary interpretation of the world of Slim Aarons, his muses, and the sense of inherent ease he captured.

Easy palazzo pants, ankle skimming cardigans and stretch cotton jumpsuits come in playful, striped fabrics and knits echoing candy colored parasols found on the Cote D’Azur. Hand painted, spiraling cacti spines inspired by the lush gardens of the Mediterranean adorn textured seersucker sundresses. This horticultural theme flows into embroidery; aerial views of symmetrical French topiary gardens combined with sheer polka dot chiffon and tulle ruffles.

Cinched in, feminine waists paired with relaxed, rolled sleeves feature throughout the collection, creating an overtly feminine silhouette reminiscent of 1950’s sirens. Languid wide legged culottes, buttoned bodice jumpsuits and cotton tailored jackets paired with calf grazing dresses and skirts adorned with diaphanous frills.

The color palette celebrates life in the South of France; fresh azure blues, lilacs, shades of olive and laurel greens, rose and powder pinks and accents of candy cane red, poppy and peach.

Decadent eveningwear tinged with seduction and joie de vivre bring the sun drenched day to a close, ready for the midnight hour at Hotel du Cap. Luxurious metallic Italian fil-coupe, iridescent sequins graduating from petite to large palettes, sheer gathered tulle, crystal embellishments, plunging necklines and voluminous skirts give an unexpected lightness and seduction.

“The collection transports us to the Temperley Riviera … where the summer never ends.” — Alice Temperley MBE
