Temperley London S/S '11

I love Temperley London, and was extra happy to see they were also showing their more affordable Alice by Temperley collection at the same time = bonus win! But first, let's talk about the high-end line.I totally DIE! Like usual, the collection walked a perfect balance of elegant and edgy; it was very medieval. Romantically inspired by Guinevere and Arthur, there were impossibly feminine dresses in pale pink and white and some badass chain mail-like mesh tunics with hoods that I seriously covet. And you know how I love harnesses as accessories!
Alice by Temperley was more youthful, airy and inspired by Marie Antionette. Great toile du Jouy and zig zag prints, what appear to be convertible belt bags (WANT PLEASE), and girly soft pieces with tough leather thrown in resulted in a strong, very wearable collection.
