Fashion Scout » ALICE by Temperley


Looks we live for: black, white and red (together). Stripes. Aztec prints. Capes and clunky boots. Party dresses cinched tight at the waist with a thick black leather belt. So we have to wonder…was Alice Temperley reading our diary (or maybe website) when she concocted her latest fall/winter collection?! ALICE by Temperley, the designer’s sassy diffusion line, is a tribute to the London girl-about-town, and for her winter 2010 season she appealed to the “English eclectic” – and our chic/rocker dichotomy.

That means mixing beautiful blurred floral separates with a cropped zigzag-striped sweater. A plush navy blue velvet dress with a peeking black turtleneck. A ’40s military jacket over a snug leather sheath dress. It’s a collection of our favorite things – and with her subsequent cruise and spring/summer duds now hitting stores, we can get it on sale, too! Thanks Alice – and give us ring! We have some ideas for next season…
