Temperley London are known for exquisite evening wear and soft femininity, but for autumn/winter 2012 they explored a darker, harsher aesthetic.
Floral printed dresses and oversized fur hats called to mind Russian dolls, while harsh leather belts and gold chains pointed to the military. Whatever it was, the collection had a rich, luxurious feel, made up of completely wearable elements. Perhaps Temperley are trying to break their occasionwear mould? Or perhaps they’ve realised that trying something new is never a bad thing.
