  • 'Somerset by Alice Temperley' will be the designer's first high street collection

    Alice Temperley has created a collection exclusively for John Lewis, her first ever range for the UK high street.

    Somerset, named after the designer’s home county, will showcase Temperley’s signature style in the form of sheer paneled two-tone dresses and beaded Indian evening gowns, to studded nappa leather handbags and animal print scarves.

    The 60-piece collection, which will be fronted by model Lily Donaldson, is set to arrive in John Lewis stores nationwide and online on September 4. Prices range from £29 for a scarf, £99 for a day dress and up to £1,000 for a luxurious sheepskin coat.

    Alice Temperley, MBE, said: ‘We have spent the last ten years building our lines and Somerset will compliment our existing collections; it is a very accessible product that will take our aesthetic to a wider audience.

    ‘I wanted it to be very much a collection of essentials and to design a collection that would provide a feminine and functional wardrobe for women in their everyday life.

    ‘This collection is all encompassing, effortless and draws on our classics.’

    We can’t wait!
