The 60-piece collection will hit John Lewis stores nationally and online on September 4. It will comprise of signature Temperley pieces from the last decade including leopard print knits, English button-up blouses, military jackets and long feminine dresses.

"We recently celebrated our 10th anniversary," Temperley told, "and have spent the last ten years building our lines and understanding our customer. Somerset will compliment our existing brands and is a very accessible product that will take our aesthetic to a wider audience. I know a lot of people who can't afford high fashion but appreciate well-made, wearable clothes. John Lewis is a great partner as it stands for quality, and is a trusted staple in everyone's lifestyle."

The designer has tapped Lily Donaldson to be the face of the accompanying advertising campaign. Prices for the collection will range between £29 and £1,000. For more info, check out
