This book is conceived as a celebration of Alice Temperley's aesthetic and conveys the effortless decadence and handcrafted allure of her brand.

Filled with captivating photographs from Temperley London photo shoots and fashion editorials, ALICE TEMPERLEY: ENGLISH MYTHS AND LEGENDS gives an in-depth look into the inspirations and processes behind the creation of the collections.
