TEMPERLEY LONDON FALL 2021 RTW COLLECTION
Temperley London's Fall collection riffs on the revolutionary spirit of the late '60s and early '70s.
February 24, 2021
Fizzing with youthful exuberance and inspired by musical style icons, the Temperley London Fall 2021 RTW collection paid homage to liberation in spirit, mood and imagination that summoned hope for a better, brighter, bolder tomorrow.
Alice Temperley seemed in this collection to be riffing on the perennial boho vibe encapsulated by Glastonbury just down the road. It contained punchy renditions of the floaty dresses in trippy patterns and animalia that are reliable Temperley standards, along with updated arrangements of her signature tailoring in fresh shades of velvet, leather, and fine-wale cotton corduroy.
While her change of location has not altered her sensibility, it has affected her emphasis and led to new material. Of a recently developed range of outerwear, she said: “They’re really…practical, I guess. Yeah, practical is a good word.” An expanded range of double denim offerings and some sustainable cotton jersey logo hoodies were further inherently practical pieces.
Scattered with pieces to dance in when the summer comes, but with plenty that was practical too, this was a collection with proper Somerset soul.
