For the Temperley London Spring/Summer 2015 presentation, Alice Temperley looks past the surface meaning of Japanese Shunga ink paintings to explore their patterns and textures. Translating the incredible detail pioneered by ukiyo-e painters in the 17th century was no easy feat, but Temperley’s vascular embroidery and pattern/print juxtapositions come quite close. Rendered on offbeat sportswear, Temperley’s attention to detail reads luxe, sophisticated, and new.

A global attitude is present in the collection, with looks that are ideal for travel and exploration. From Temperley’s tomboyish three-piece suits, printed separates, rolled culottes, and breezy maxis, it’s easy to discern a certain worldly je ne sais quoi. The clothes are sans borders – capable of seeming folky and sophisticated at the same time. A fantastic palette that moves fluidly between neutrals, monochrome, pastels, and jewel tones also increases the versatility of the Temperley runway. There are brilliantly crocheted tunic dresses, printed slips, silky striped robes, and oversized kimonos – the type of clothes that travel well and speak the democratic language of easy style. If you’re looking to appeal to an even broader audience, presenting this type of universal wardrobe is just the way to do it.
