Marking Temperley's first foray into the world of underwear, the collection builds on the designer's hallmark bohemian English aesthetics, yet ramps up in the seduction stakes courtesy of nostalgic references to old Hollywood glamour. As the designer explains: 'Lingerie is my next love after clothing; I think it is what is worn underneath that really inspires a woman to feel beautiful in her clothes - that inner, secret glamour'.
In addition to fine fabrics, dramatic design and delicate detail, each piece is defined by a beautiful, silhouette-enhancing fit, offering the perfect foundation to any outfit. Below, we explore the three signature lingerie ranges from the debut collection, which initially introduces sizes 30-36 B-DD, with the size range expanding up to F cup next spring.
Elegantly feminine in style and fit, Vintage Lace lingerie combines the classic black and cream pairing of Somerset's womenswear line. Crafted from a fine silk-rich blend and finished with distinctive European eyelash lace, the collection offers an opulent, Parisian-boutique edge to your lingerie drawer. The exquisite details of Vintage Lace are carried through from lingerie to nightwear for a boudoir-bound charm.
With a delicate oriental floral print throughout, the Alice lingerie collection features a stunning,
tulle-lined balcony bra and the choice of either a seamless thong or lace-trimmed briefs. The collection also offers a knee-length chemise, silk cami and knickers gift set, and a full-length silk robe. All of them are punctuated with the signature 'Alice' floral design and come complete with a luxurious silk eye mask.
Clean and chic, the Deco range
offers exquisite old-Hollywood glamour with a luxurious finish. Crafted from a fine silk blend and with a distinctive darted detail to both the bandeau bra and full briefs, the Deco collection offers a nod to the chic geometric forms of the '30s, resulting in a sculpturally seductive look.
Available in claret and oyster.
