Temperley London Spring/Summer 13

The only show I attended this fashion week was Temperley London's - as I work there! I escaped away on holiday with my best friend missing the rest of fashion week!
I was working with PR backstage and sorting out sitting the guests. It was pretty crazy but so good!!
We snacked on Itsu sushi and Proper Popcorn (sour cream and chive!) whilst running around like madmen. I've got some backstage photos from my ipod (hence the not so great quality) incase you would like to see!

The actual collection was called Return to Elegance, and elegant it certainly was. A slight 50's silhouette of dress strolled through occasionally, with a theme that reminded many of summer in the Hamptons. The skirt and top combinations would look great on Grace Kelly in High Society!
Red, cornflower blue and ivory were supreme colours, in a ribbon and tulle stripe design which started the show off.
Other later themes were the elongated, tall navy and red jersey jumpsuits worn with stunning round circle hats, covering the eyes and forehead - these looked very very cool. The thing which everybody said about this collection though, which I completely agree on, is that everything is wearable. Just simple elegance - no manic lady gaga nonsense, just beautiful pieces any woman would want to wear to show off her femininity. 
The design team were up until the early hours of that day doing fittings, which I think is amazing. The stylist Katie Shillingford showed off the pieces very beautifully. 
The cute shoes were Charlotte Olympia.
