Quintessentially British, Temperley London mixes timeless silhouettes with intoxicating collage embroidery for a deeply romantic blend of functionality and fantasy. The bridal offering carries the same free-spirited nature as the ready-to-wear collection, offering classic hand-embroidery on ethereal dresses executed in lush fabrics. Focused on four categories — classic romanticism, old school glamour, spirited statement and bohemian — each season offers ten new styles.

The most noticeable standout was the introduction of color via bohemian dress with wild flower hand-embroidery that straddled the bridal-rtw distinction. It was easily imagined in both a formal ceremony and garden party setting. Indeed, the strength of this collection was the cohesive transition from rtw that made every piece inherently Temperley. You got the intricate embroidery crafted with Swarovski crystals, glass bugles, beads, sequins, organza flowers, etc, now in a palette of predominantly white, and never the impression this was a separate aesthetic.

There were also playful silhouettes, and the experimental bride could find options in the Art Deco-inspired sequin panel dress and a lace jumpsuit that gave the appearance of a classic lace dress from the front.
