Temperley London Fall 2011: Museum Pieces
LONDON--That no fashion show had ever been mounted at the British Museum now seems like an oversight, thanks to Alice Temperley’s theatrical production. For her brand's 10th anniversary, Temperley brought a collection about grown-up glamour to the London landmark's soaring atrium. The color palette was restricted to champagne, black, silver, and eventually, some Fire and Ice red (the Dorian Leigh version). A fan-skirted evening gown nodded at Victoriana and lingerie through an oversized, black-and-white lace print on champagne satin, with a pair of elbow-length leather gloves keeping it young.
