The Story of: The Feather Print

One of the standout elements of the Temperley London Pre Fall 13 collection has been the Feather Print which in both mint and navy adorns gowns, tops, dresses and scarves. As with the Pavan Print, the Feather Print is the handiwork of the in house design team and was skilfully hand painted in water colour. Using feathers collected by Alice and looking to Victorian era botanical paintings to influence style of painting, the images were then digitally placed so as to be falling around the body. Featured on the front cover of Tatler Russia, worn by the beautiful Carla Bruni, the print has proved immensely popular- being also picked out by Natalie Massenet, model Jacquetta Wheeler, and Alice.

The intricately hand painted print took inspiration from vintage feathers belonging to Alice, watercolours were used to create highlights and vivid patterns
