If there’s one thing we should always take for granted, that’s the fact that Alice Temperley’s bridal collections will always be astoundingly imposing. The newest Temperley London bridal fall 2017 collection just confirmed it once again, as its otherworldly, fairytale-like dresses infused the runway show with romantic, if not almost magical, touches.
The overall Temperley London fall 2017 bridal collection’s silhouettes tended toward the ample, leaving thus enough room for Alice Temperley to play with delicate details, such as 3-D floral embroideries and feathers. It was an old style glamour pictured in this collection, as it veered toward the Seventies-inspired boho chic motifs, as well as used Roaring Twenties and Thirties Art Deco references, of course, here translated into strong Hollywood diva-inspired vibes.
While the mermaid dresses and the A-line gowns with structured feathery shoulders copiously drew their inspirational motifs from Art Deco and the Twenties, the airy staples sort of met Mother Nature halfway, as their hand-sewn colorful flowers and botanical patterns gave a textural, multi-dimensional appeal to the entire collection. Such colorful patterns might not embody conventionally autumnal themes, but will surely end up radiating a bright confidence and an apologetically cool elegance at any late September outdoor wedding ceremony.
Floral crowns and tiaras surely helped enhance the Temperley London bridal fall 2017 collection’s natural theme, the patterns of which were at the core of the latest Temperley London ready-to-wear lineup, too.
Bejeweled belts cinched at the waists, intricate beaded geometrical motifs and Swarovski crystals revamped, on the other hand, the more Hollywood-approved pieces, which inevitably featured extravagant fabrics and finishes. Glittery gowns, sleek, lightweight fabrics and even sequined patterns gave this collection its most intriguing haute couture hint, balanced by Alice Temperley’s ample usage of sheer, see-through lace patterns and draped cuts.
The most variegated and astounding side of the collection lay, however, within Temperley’s approach to the necklines. Alternating everything from sweetheart to plunging V-necklines, turtlenecks and even Americana cuts, Alice Temperley never stopped playing with the lineup’s proportions and volumes, as she really managed to diversify the styles and reinterpret the classics just by adding, or cutting away, several inches of cloth.
Pearls, Swarovski crystals, glass bugles, scalloped hems and the omnipresent floral appliqués and embroideries played a huge role in redefining the necklines too, as we all know that when it comes to tailored detailing, Alice Temperley never backs down.
