Temperley London is entering its fourteenth year of business in 2014 with its namesake creative director Alice Temperley, MBE heading up the independent British luxury brand. Temperley creates clothes that memories are made in, with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.
The world of Temperley houses three lines; Temperley London, ALICE by Temperley and Temperley Bridal.
‘Temperley London’ is a feminine, timeless designer collection with an individual ethereal signature of effortless luxury. Detail is paramount with artisan techniques and hand worked embellished incorporating inspirations from around the globe and drawing on all things British in lifestyle and personality.
‘ALICE by Temperley’, the contemporary sister line to Temperley London, launched in 2010 is created with the same spirit of Temperley, but for the everyday with a rock n’ roll twist, offering key signatures such as lace, leather, tailoring, knitwear and relaxed eveningwear.
‘Temperley Bridal’ launched in 2006, has expanded to two collections a year and is sold at leading bridal ateliers worldwide as well as in exclusive Bridal Salons found in all Temperley own-brand boutiques. Temperley Bridal offers made-to-order, bespoke and ready-to-wear styles.
Temperley London has also expanded into lifestyle with leather goods, Temperley Scented Candles and Temperley Scarves with plans to move into further categories.
The past thirteen years have earned the Temperley brand critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world. Amongst others, ‘Temperley London’ fans include; Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Florence Welch, Penélope Cruz and Jennifer Lopez, with fans of ‘ALICE by Temperley’ ranging from Beyonce, Jessica Biel and Emma Watson to Hailee Steinfeld and Katy Perry.
The company currently operates five standalone stores; two in London (a Flagship in London’s Mayfair and a destination boutique in Notting Hill), Dubai (the Dubai Mall), Doha, Qatar (the Gate Mall) as well as an outlet in Bicester Village. The online store has recently re-launched at TemperleyLondon.com.
In September 2013 Temperley London appointed Ulrik Garde Due as Chief Executive Officer, taking over from the companies co-founder and longstanding CEO, Lars Von Bennigsen.
The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury fashion brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.
