Again, how can the Duchess of Cambridge resist these clothes? Actually it is clear to me that these clothes have a much wider appeal than just to royalty or women of a particular age. They are just plainly said… beautiful clothes.
Feminine, soft, appealing, flattering colorful if that’s what you search for and just all around wonderfully wearable clothes for evening or to use an old expression… after 5. For me, this is a collection that offers up everything from red carpet worthy gowns to mother of the bride and everything in between.
Alice Temperley is indeed a force of nature and any retailer who turns up their nose at her is a retailer that is bent of NOT doing business. Do not misunderstand my sentiments here, this is not a collection that sets the world on fire with innovation and ground breaking design but what it does is offer the opportunity to make cash registers sing and make women lust for dressy clothes.
At a time when designers are only lauded for the absurd and unwearable, Ms. Temperley steps up to the plate and delivers a hugely commercial, stylish and chic alternative to gimmicky overtly sexy and useless clothes that can only be worn by a size 0 to size 6. From where I sit, this means she deserves any kudos and laudatory reviews that she might receive and certainly my thumbs up and more!
