LFW: Temperley London

By: Quinn Bell

Temperley London showed their Fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection, titled “Byrds,” this morning. Inspired by Melanie Daniels, a character from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1963 horror flick “The Birds,” the collection referenced 60’s glamour through swing coats, shift dresses, A-line silhouettes and wide legged trousers.

The clothes were demure and lady-like with hemlines reaching just above the knee. Details included sheer panels on dresses, check prints and metallic thread. The colours were mostly neutral with the occasional pop of turquoise, yellow or blue in a jewel tone. Models’ had slick, sophisticated buns, winged eyeliner and each wore a pair of sky-high platform pumps. White or black leather gloves and oversized cat-eye sunglasses were seen throughout. The show came to a close with a parade of prim and proper, floor sweeping gowns, embellished with silver and gold beads.
