On Thursday I had the privilege to preview the new collections from Temperley at their beautiful west London boutique. Not only did I get walked through the main line Temperley A/W 11-12 collection as well as the Alice by Temperley collection, I was also shown the exclusive collaboration between Temperley and Barbour ‘ The Barbour Gold Label’ which until Thursdays press day had never yet been revealed.
The collection, which will be available this Summer consists of 14 pieces which bring together Barbour heritage with Temperleys modern and glamorous approach on tradition.
Amazing leather with quilting and faux fur collars make up the 5 beautiful jackets and the 9 pieces of knitwear which are finished with chunky knit detail made me want to wrap up in all of them right there and wish for the first time in life for the winter to come!
“Barbour, one of my favourite British brands, is the perfect fit for Temperley. As we plan to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2011, this collaboration comes at a significant time for our brand and offers our customers even more to choose from than ever before.” Alice Temperley
Amongst the excitement of the The Barbour Gold Label collection, Temperley also combined forces with beauty brand Elemis to create two wash bags filled with pampering products from Elemis, one for her and one for him. These will also be available this summer and will cost around £50 some of which will go to charity.
I will be posting my favourite looks and pieces from the autumn/winter 11 Alice by Temperley collection tomorrow. Be sure to come back and check it out.
