Temperley London to show in London in February 2011

It has been announced that Temperley London will again show their Autumn / Winter 2011 collection in London in February. Celebrating it’s tenth year, Temperley London showed in New York from 2005 to 2008.  Of her label’s return to London, Temperley has said;

“While we have tremendously enjoyed showing the collections in exciting places and new ways over the past year, there is something about the drama of a show that makes it a very special experience. It’s our ten-year anniversary as well so we are even more delighted to come back to where it all started.”

About Temperley London Spring / Summer 2011

Celebrating the great romantic myths such as Guinevere and Arthur, for Spring / Summer 2011 Temperley London created a collection that evoked a modern femininity with medieval toughness. Starting the collection in a colour palette of pewter, bronze and gold, looks appeared to be wrapped in gold mesh / chain mail. As the collection continued, lighter shades of blush along with pure white created some memorable separates that are fresh, practical and perfect for summer…

Chic This Week

The Best Dressed Ladies Of The Week Are…

Kate Bosworth, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester & Kylie Minogue all stepped out looking stunning this week in some of my favourite designer looks from the Spring / Summer 11 & Autumn / Winter 10 collections! 

The looks on the catwalk…

1>> Kate Bosworth looked divine in an Erdem Spring / Summer 2011 look. The white lace and red embroidered flowers are sophisticated, feminine and simply perfect!

2>> Meanwhile, Blake Lively was style personified in Versace. This Gossip Girl’s fashion style is continually evolving and I am loving her red carpet looks of late.

3>> While in Madrid for ‘Herbal Essences’; another Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester, wore a black dress from the Versus Autumn / Winter 2010 collection. A classic little black dress at it’s best!

4>> And finally, Kylie Minogue performed at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade wearing a look from the Chanel Fall 2010 collection. The tweed coat with faux fur trims looks delightfully warm yet oh-so chic!    

Who is your best dressed this week? xx
