Temperley London at London Fashion Week Spring 2014 014Sicily is not only an inspiration for a certain Italian design duo: Alice Temperley delivered a charming, retro and very English interpretation of la dolce vita. The prints said it all — leopard spots mingling with a tumble of pink or mauve orchid blossoms — as did the pale Wedgwood colors, applied to Sixties couture shapes in heavy silks. But for a few loose shifts and waist-hugging cocktail numbers, Temperley focused on swingy, trapeze shapes, including color-blocked tops and grand evening coats with intricate cutouts on the sleeves and shoulders. What the clothes sometimes lacked in youth and modernity, they made up for with dazzling workmanship and gentility.
