Temperley London Autumn / Winter 2013: The Birds

Still romantic and utterly feminine in essence, Temperley London’s fall / winter 2013 collection reached for a surprisingly dramatic source of inspiration, as it was highly influenced by Tippi Hedren’s iconic character in Hitchcock’s classic horror movie, “The Birds”. With the image of a frosty, prim and proper Melanie Daniels in minds, the designer envisioned a polished and glamorous 60s inspired line up which allowed her to play around the alpha female concept – the one that seems to embody the personality and aesthetic of the Temperley London woman these days.

Hiding a darker side but still maintaining a luxuriously chic image, the woman we are talking about wouldn’t mind adding a hint of edginess to her otherwise fit-and-flare demure wardrobe. On the runway this same theory translated to a display of ladylike ensembles, refined coats and cap sleeve dresses, all intriguingly light, but suppressing a hint of fascinating darkness. For evening the designer went back to the roots, imagining silk column gowns, covered in Temperley’s signature beaded work, at times touched by exquisite gold-filigree notes, other times decorated with elaborate built-in necklaces.
