Editor's Notes

A true indulgence that is sure to see you through the coming season and beyond in style, our exclusive Somerset by Alice Temperley collection is peppered with Alice’s free-spirited, contemporary bohemian signature.

Lovingly crafted to combine premium fabrics, elegant styles and artisan accents, the collection brings a touch of Temperley to your wardrobe punctuated with classic military details such as framed buttons and sleek lines.

“The aesthetic is one that I really believe in; effortless, feminine and unpretentious, which is what the Somerset philosophy is all about,” says Alice.


For the summer season, Somerset by Alice Temperley embraces easy luxe shapes, flowing lines and sophisticated lace and mesh detail for an intricate finish, inspired by the Temperley London collection.

Meanwhile, soft tailoring, cutwork detail and delicated embroidery offset gently gathered detail and relaxed pleats for a carefree and featherlight feel.

Somerset by Alice Temperley Tile Print Silk Maxi Dress, Blue 4.5 5 2 2
Ultimate Summer dress I live in Brisbane, Australia and this dress is perfect for our sub-tropical climate. For starters, it is silk - highly breathable fabric. It is fully lined and is beautifully cut, emphasising curves quite nicely. The print is stunning and fit is true to size. The top is cut quite generously, so anyone under a B cup may need a dart or two put in by a tailor. I am 5'3" and will need to have it shortened a little but fortunately not too much to spoil the gradation of colour. Love the Somerset range - affordable design & quality. Highly recommended. 12 May 2013
Pretty This dress is pretty and summery and the way the colour graduates from pale at the top to darker at the bottom is a nice feature. Unfortunately in my usual size, while it fitted beautifully from the empire line down, I could not do it up over the bust and I am only moderately sized. I will try the next size up but fear it will then be too big over the hips. What I was disappointed about was the lining being polyester. As the description states it is 100% silk I assumed that would include the lining, in the absence of any information to the contrary. I wanted it for a wedding in Malaysia and thought 100% silk would be ideal for the heat, but I think the lining would make it too uncomfortable. 05 April 2013
