The Legends sunglasses collection is a love letter to Alice’s treasured memories of Glastonbury. The Somerset based festival is a perennial feature in Alice’s Summer - having attended every year with her family since she was 2 years old. With an unbridled sense of freedom and immersion in mass revelry, there is nothing quite like Glastonbury.
Revelry and freedom set the tone for the new sunglasses collection from Temperley London, with Alice's Glastonbury hero's inspiring the names for the collection.
"I am so excited to have well made, iconic sunglasses to complete our looks. The quality and finish is fantastic and I am delighted that they have been made using bio-acetate which is an innovative material helping us to reduce our plastic waste. I can't wait to see people enjoying them."
Alice Temperley MBE
This eclectic offering is a fusion of the classic and the contemporary with a rock and roll edge. With echoes of Temperley’s synonymous aesthetic of embellishment and artisanal detailing, alongside Alice’s dedication to creating pieces that stand the test of time, the Legends collection offers timeless frames to be worn from dawn till dusk, season after season. The perfect accessories for escapists and those who rank freedom and fantasy high on the agenda.
The Florence draws inspiration from the embellishment of the bestselling embroidery stories from the recent Autumn ’22 Wild West collection. These statement making flush gold studs add a bohemian twist to the 70’s inspired round shape.
The Dolly is a reworked classic. A shape that Alice has always had in her personal sunglasses' arsenal, the cat-eye is the ultimate silhouette for achieving retro glamour. Adorned with flush gold studs across the upper frame, the Dolly is both feminine and bold with a decadent Temperley touch.
With a 90’s inspired almond shape and subtle gold metal detailing, the Blondie is an effortless style that will elevate and embolden any look.
With sharp lines and oversized proportions, the Joan is a statement frame that is contoured with gold metal accents across the bridge and arms to create maximum impact.
Complimenting the core offering of black and tortoiseshell, the frames also come in jewel rich tones – emerald green and red, alongside a softer palette of ivory and dusty pink.
Temperley London have partnered with EGO EYEWEAR, a Stockholm based design and licensing house that produce premium eyewear. The sunglasses have been crafted from bio acetate which is produced using renewable resources. This material maintains all of the qualities of standard acetate but is biodegradable and therefore a more environmentally friendly option. The structured case is embossed with a leopard motif sourced from the Temperley print archive.
