This season William Tempest’s collection is very beautiful, feminine and sexy. William’s collection is inspired by sirens, the mythical half beauty half sea creatures. The collection has an ethereal, fantastical quality. There is lots of soft draping with chiffons, georgettes and velvet devoré often with a hidden corset and double duchess satins and triple silk organdies which lend a more structural element to the collection. The colours are bright coral, lemon and raspberry with a very cool print ( I love William’s prints). The print depicts a siren creature – a kind of lobster woman!
One of the things about trying on a beautifully made dress is it actually makes you feel beautiful. William’s current collection is a reminder of how tactile fashion is and how beautiful fabric feels against the skin.
