Somerset by Alice Temperley for John Lewis brings a feminine and eclectic 1970s feel to spring summer 2014. The collection draws inspiration from Ossie Clark and seventies fashion icons such as Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull, and includes culottes, drape blouses and maxi skirts. This theme is also echoed in Somerset accessories, with the addition of a cowboy inspired Western ankle boot, a tassel monk shoe and leopard print faux pony shoes and handbags.

Tailoring is updated with a new, cleaner profile. Light spring knits sit alongside a floral lace organza skirt, a peplum organza top, ditsy floral print shift dresses and a tapestry print pair of culottes - a new style for Somerset. Scoop back jersey tops in black and cream are also a new addition to the collection.

In accessories, flatforms will sit alongside a new version of last summer’s best-selling thong sandal with metal plating. Detailing continues to be key in the buckled gladiator heels and laser cut brogues.

A best-seller from autumn winter 2013, the cross body bag has been updated for the summer season with different sizes for daytime and evening. Pony skin continues into handbags, with a statement box top handle bag.

Alice Temperley, MBE, comments, “The spring summer Somerset collection has a summer evening feel, from the loose fit of the clothes to the eclectic prints. Taking inspiration from the softly pleated, high-waisted dresses synonymous of Ossie Clark, this season the collection embodies a feminine feel whilst staying true to the tailored Somerset aesthetic.”

Jo Hooper, Head of Womenswear Buying, added, “The new collection is built on a range of separates that can all be worn together. The addition of jersey tops provides an easy solution for everyday dressing, offering the option to dress head-to-toe in Somerset.”

Amanda Scott, Head of Buying, Accessories, John Lewis, says, “This season, our accessories draw from a natural colour palette, punctuated with animal print. The flat leopard print espadrille pump will be a hero product for the season and will look effortlessly chic when teamed with the matching leopard print satchel with equestrian buckle.”
