Yesterday I woke up and jumped out of bed with a bit of a spring in my step. I was headed to preview the Somerset by Alice Temperley collection for John Lewis. A few of us were invited to meet Alice Temperley and to try on the collection before the store opened at 8 30am. Yes, we were there early… very early. However, it was worth the few hours of shut eye to see what Alice Temperley had created.
The Somerset by Alice Temperley collection is strong, very strong. It’s Alice Temperley but with John Lewis prices. It’s also perfectly timed for those of us looking to score a few fashion hits before fashion week begins. From oversized shearling coats to dainty dresses for London lasses, this collection has something for everyone. Personal favourites for me were found in the shoe department where knee high boots or calf-skin animal print boots were screaming my name from the moment I walked into the shop.
The line is available to buy in store at John Lewis or online. I’d recommend a quick shop as the hundreds of women that turned up this morning nearly cleaned John Lewis out. It was truly wonderful to watch so many women get excited about fashion, but also remain calm as they shopped. I felt this was an accurate reflection of the lady who wears Temperley. She’s put together perfectly, is always polite but loves to take calculated risks in fashion.
Thank you to Alice and the entire team for a wonderful morning!
