Alice by Temperley is a diffusion line from the Temperley brand, launched by British Fashion Graduate, Alice Temperley, which specialises in dresses, coats, tops, jackets and accessories. The Temperley brand was launched in 2000 and nine years later in 2009, Alice launched Alice by Temperley.
Alice Temperley has won many awards for her designs, including English Print Designer of the Year in 1999 and the Elle Magazine Young Designer of the Year Award, amongst others.
The Alice By Temperley collection is the embodiment of the British spirit, with influences from the rock and roll scene in London. There are four collections per year, which include dresses, coats, knitwear and accessories. Leather is used frequently in the styles and some of the outerwear and accessories are inspired by the military.
Other items include laid back designs such as silk trousers, knitted tunics and textured blouses in neutral colours including nude, black and mink. There are also the more edgy dresses featuring stud embellishment.
Even though the line has only been in existence for a short time, Alice by Temperley already has a strong celebrity following, including stars such as Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Coca Rocha and Rihanna.
