Alice Temperley reveals Somerset collection for John Lewis
Since announcing two months ago she would be collaborating with John Lewis, Alice Temperley has now revealed her new collection for the British retailer. The designer unveiled her new Somerset by Temperley collection during a catwalk show this week. According to Vogue UK, the range includes Temperley's signature printed dresses, ruffled bohemian tops, oversized knits and leopard print. Boho lovers will love this collection, but it is still versatile enough to wear as everyday pieces.
"I think most women want their wardrobe to be versatile; to be stylish without being trendy; to be well-made and hard-working," she says. "Since the recession, customers are spending more on investment pieces - but they want high-street buys to work harder. They want pieces that transcend seasons, and to wear in the city or the country, from the office to a night out."
The collaboration is on the back of Temperley London celebrating its 10th anniversary. "[We 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," she said in May.
Prices for the Somerset by Temperley collection starts £29 for a scarf to £1,000 for a sheepskin coat. The collection will be available from September, for more visit johnlewis.com/somerset
