Temperley London serves up Grace Kelly-style elegance

Temperley London’s Resort 2012 collection offers up classical elegance in Grace Kelly portions. While other Resort collections have moved away from the idea of luxury holidaying Temperley’s in on holiday 24 hours 7 days, with daywear and eveningwear that would leave you no choice but to be transformed into a beacon of ladylike sophistication. That said, it’s also cleverly versatile: take away the platform pumps, the glittering starfish belts, the wide-brimmed hats, and most piece would be quite at home in a day-to-day city wardrobe, too.

Look out particularly for full-skirted frocks that channel the 1950s and 1960s, slit skirts that drape up at the front revealing a long back, and one nicely cut take on the white double-breasted wide-leg women’s suit.
