For Autumn Winter 2012, the Temperley collection took to the catwalk with every model saturated in opulent MAWI jewels. Alice had wanted to work with MAWI for some time and the ‘Renaissance’ collection was the perfect place to begin this beautiful partnership between the two archetypal London-based brands.
The sumptuous and colourful dresses, an ode to Russian imperialist opulence, warranted an equally opulent set of jewels which were evocative of the Renaissance. Giant pearls paired with bright candy gems hung from elegant pearl chains, the collection itself conjured up the floral elegance of the 18th century, and the regal ensemble was made complete with Charlotte Olympia shoes. All in all, the catwalk became a lesson in the art of elegance, combining the best of modern design with the gems of bygone eras.
