LUST HAVES: Somerset by Alice Temperley Exclusively to John Lewis

Posted on: September 5, 2012

The opportunity to snap up an iconic British designer’s pieces at a fraction of the price of their catwalk creations is always tempting. And it’s a relationship that British retailers and designers do so well. Yesterday there was much excitement as Alice Temperley launched her first ever high street collaboration with John Lewis:  Somerset by Alice Temperley.

Temperley is no stranger to excitement, her exotic and ethereal creations have graced the willowy silhouettes of some of the world’s most famous women. Who can forget the Duchess of Cambridge in that stunning black lace floor sweeping gown at the War Horse premier? The high street collection of 60 wearable pieces all featuring those Temperley signatures (think boho dresses, floaty Victoriana inspired blouses and the all essential military jacket) was named after and inspired by Somerset where the designer lives. The first drop that hit stores yesterday has a selection of easy-to-wear versatile pieces. We’re particularly looking forward to the gorgeous party dresses that will be available closer to the festive season. We’ll keep you posted! Natalie x
