Polished Folk by Temperley London


I had a great day yesterday at LFW, met some really cool people and shared some thoughts on fashion. Somerset House hosted really cool shows yesterday, Temperley London was one on top of my Saturday must see shows. The romantic feeling of the collection was inspired by Slavic folk, Alice Temperley referred to the collection as "Polished Folk"; although the folk part resembled particularly on the artesanal work of embroidery, prints and colours. For me the collection reflected more the Slavic aristocracy than the common people, maybe that was the whole point to maintain the current clientele. 


I hope you don't get me wrong, I truly did enjoy the collection; the fabrics were delicate and light. Very feminine and sensual yet some outfits reinforced woman's strength and versatility. The dress seemed to be the strong point of the collection, presented in different variations of length, fabric and colour. The suit appears to be a recurrent resource of designers this next Fall, we have seen it many different shows, with pencil skirts or flared leg trousers; if you are inclined to manly and androgenic lines or feminine lines, there seems to be an option for every taste in the market.

The colour palette maintained loyal to the inspiration, metallics joined prove to be great accent to a collection, once more . However the printed tulle made the colours and textures pop out nicely, I thought the work was beautifully accomplished. It transmitted a romantic feeling of an exotic lifestyle; in a place where East meets West, where cultures fusion to create a unique one rich in details.
