Celebrating a decade of fashion from tastemaker Alice Temperley, the Queen of Magpie Style and one of England’s most exciting fashion designers. Alice Temperley’s distinctive designs combine meticulous detail and lush layers of beaded and embroidered ornamentation, earning her critical acclaim and devoted fans from the red carpet to the high street. Her collections, coveted for their indie-bohemian glamour, have matured into a classic British line inspired by eclectic sources, drawing on everything from Aubrey Beardsley prints to vintage punk. Celebrated for her craftsmanship and arty eccentricity, her influence has spread from fashion to interiors and lifestyle.
Lavishly illustrated, this monograph is as layered and vibrant as Temperley’s designs, tracing the development of her style and the growth of her company over the last decade with images from leading fashion magazines, celebrity-filled parties, and a close examination of her textile designs, embroideries, and iconic pieces.
Daring, provocative, and always with a sense of wit, her designs have made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.
