After launching in 2009, ALICE by Temperley has flourished before our very eyes. Not just famous for that sell-out scarf seen on everyone from Emma Watson to Baby Blue Ivy, the Brit brand has expanded into the glitzy eveningwear and full-length gowns that its big sister, Temperley London, is famous for. Yes, ALICE has gone gorgeously glam on us and we likey.
Take a look at the exclusive sneak preview of the Autumn Winter 2013 collection in the gallery above and you'll see what we mean. The new ALICE collection was inspired by Marchesa Luisa Casati - the Italian heiress who astounded Europe with her eccentricity, so expect sheer sexiness courtesy of Art Nouveau prints on opulent fabrics and long silhouettes with cinched waistlines that emphasise your curves.
Our picks? You have to see the Long Luisa dress with form-fitting lace layered over silk. We've also got our eye on the luxurious printed Long Olympia dress as well as the transparent spot tulle Long Celia dress, which adds a sexy edge to the classic style.
New Muse: Marchesa Luisa Casati
As for Alice’s favourite pieces for Autumn Winter, she's opting for the long dresses perfect for an evening soiree. 'It’s important for a woman to create more reasons to dress up, that’s what makes fashion fun and fantasy,' she tells us. 'This season we have used delicate embellishment, beautiful lace and ethereal silhouettes and re worked them in typical ALICE style for a youthful take on glamour.'
There's also a dash of tailoring thanks to the military-styled Collette flared coat in sumptuous imitation fur and the Regina coat in coral, which wouldn't look a miss on a be-bumped Kate Middleton. ALICE's key signature, leather, also reappears for Autumn on the butter-soft Mini Giovanni dress with suede panels and the Giovanni jacket, which combines tough leather tailoring with a fluid peplum shape.
ALICE By Temperley's AW13 collection is available to buy in stores and online from July - just in time for the arrival of a certain royal baby. What? Baby Blue doesn't get to have ALL the fun.
