Alice Temperley showed yet another cool style lesson of layering spring clothing pieces with her Temperley London spring/summer 2015 collection that has just been unveiled at London Fashion Week. It was a curious conglomeration of interesting spring-ready mild colors, trendy prints and patterns, clashing styles and fabrics, which managed to make this collection so diverse and spectacular. “I was inspired by colour and print from very naughty Japanese paintings, woodblock prints, surreal sea creatures and lots of mixing of layers and kimono references with our looks both for day and evening,” Alice noted. From the charming androgynous motifs and pajama-style vibes to bold cuts, oversized shapes and comfy sporty touches, the newest Temperley London spring 2015 collection has it all to cater to various style demands and preferences this spring. Fashionisers with completely different tastes and personalities can find something close to their hearts in this single cool fashion line!
From the very first look showcased, the big influence of the men’s fashion on the Temperley London spring/summer 2015 collection could be felt. The first model hit the runway wearing a gray masculine-style overall with the unbuttoned top boldly revealing the cleavage of the model, and topped with a long trench-coat in the same print and color. Next, the myriad of looks featuring the classic men’s suit vest in various hues and styles came out, featuring an unexpected cut on the back revealing lots of skin and looking that daring and cool! Tailored masculine blazers matched with interesting layered shorts, the same vests combined with wide-legged oversized culottes made an appearance later.
The big inclination towards topping the looks with trench-coats and long kimonos just in the same hues, fabrics and prints as the entire outfits gave another interesting touch to the collection. Generally, the looks demonstrated a wonderful play of layering, making the outfits demonstrated slightly bulky, yet still breezy and spring-appropriate thanks to the fabrics chosen. Lots of gingham patterns, checkered patterns and stripes put in various hues were there to break the entire pale monochrome of the looks.
It was a pastel and monochrome collection, featuring tons of dusty pinks, baby blues, light grays, creams and whites, with touches of reds used for an array of colorful and printed looks. Transparency motifs could also be seen, put for a number of lace dresses, see-through elegant tops and shirts and lovely crochet pieces. We should also mention the pajama style looks, like the one composed of a long silk striped robe topping the striped silk culottes and the shirt. Shirts were mostly unbuttoned for a bolder feel, while the dresses and tops came with backless designs. There were also lots of breezy chiffon dresses adorned with tons of prints, which came to be amazing alternatives to those classy jacquard garments.
Besides the rule of topping all the looks with light trench-coats and robe-like kimonos (which kind of created an interesting play of lengths especially in the case of the shorts and mini skirts and dresses), the Temperley London spring/summer 2015 collection also complemented every single look presented with long scarves, which still continued the same layering symphony. Along with this, all the outfits were finished off with sporty sneakers, coming either in monochrome hues or printed styles just the way the entire outfits were.
The simplicity of the collection was also revealed thanks to the minimal makeup choices and the sleek straight hair of the models. Overall, the Temperley London spring/summer 2015 collection was a lightweight and fresh line of garments, which managed to fuse so many styles and vibes still looking impressive!
