Alice by Temperley

 Good news for anyone who's ever fallen in love with one of Alice Temperley's exquisite intricate gorgeous pieces and then seen the £1,000+ price tag - The Sunday Style Magazine reliably informs me she's about to launch her new diffusion line for Spring/Summer 2010!

When I see her clothes in Selfridges and Harvey Nick's (my favourite places for a bit of designer ogling!) they always seem so delicate and detailed I worry that just by breathing on them I might do some sort of irreparable damage so the idea of owning something with the same quality of design but a much lower price seems both safer and more desirable!

I could find very little information, and even fewer photos despite quite a lot of time searching the internet, so for now I'll have to be content with these pictures of a few items from The Sunday Style and a sneak picture of the upcoming website.

The close ups of the items look a little plain compared to what I think of as Temperley style, but other items like most of the models' clothes in the first picture have me swooning. All pictures via The Times Online unless otherwise stated.

absolutely gorgeous but still a little on the pricey side :(

Everything looks amazing, but yup: still a bit expensive. But that stripe dress definitely looks like its worth it.

(Those New Look heels are actually surprisingly comfy!)

That stripy dress is gorgeous and I love the carosel tee! I want them both but still a little pricey perhaps?! xx

I agree - pretty clothes but not really worth the price tag, in my opinion. They look a lot like high-street items but lack high street affordability!

I agree! If there was something really stand out in the collection I might be tempted, but at these prices, too expensive!
