The Temperley London look for SS14 is predictably sophisticated and unexpectedly full of fantasy. Dreamily dainty florals cascade down to the floor on delicate sheers, whilst leopard prints merge into purple or pink cherry blossom flowers creating a striking contrast with a young and fresh appeal, particularly in the shorter dresses.

Heavier mint green silks are embroidered or given a punched/lace look. Trapeze skirts, kimono-sleeved jackets and colour block dresses also feature.

The colour scheme focusses mainly on pinks, purples, cream and black. The combination of different cuts, fabric weights and floral styles presents femininity in a variety of forms; sometimes ethereal, sometimes classic, and sometimes contemporary chic, but each is as pretty as the last.
