Alice Temperley is one of my favourite designers, her clothes epitomize everything I love about fashion. Clean and elegant lines, gorgeous fabrics, exquisite patterns and elaborate and beautiful embellishments. There was not one item from her ready-to-wear fall 09 collection that I didn't immediately fall in love with. Inspired by the Silk Route, the collection was whimsical and other worldly with military tailoring and embellishments mixed with delicate patterns and moments of dazzling colour. The jewel embellished necklines and waists cinched with studded belts added the perfect touch. The collection was sexy, but not overtly so, delicate but not girly and best of all, it was infinitely wearable. Sigh.
