Alice Temperley to showcase SS line at Coronation Festival

ALICE TEMPERLEY MBE is one of the designers to feature in the Coronation Festival catwalk show. To mark the occasion, Temperley updated two of the most popular pieces from her Somerset collection for John Lewis - which, as its Oxford Street store is a royal warrant holder, was invited to take part in the commemorative show.

Temperley's Somerset label is the fastest-selling brand ever to launch at John Lewis - so was a natural choice to represent the respected department store. The Coronation Festival will be held from July 11-14 in celebration of the Queen's 60 years on the throne, and will also pay tribute to six decades of British fashion with a catwalk show set in the palace gardens.

"When designing the Somerset pieces to be shown exclusively at the Coronation Festival catwalk we drew on British heritage and tradition - a quality that is intrinsic to the Somerset autumn/winter 2013-14 collection," Temperley told us. "We updated Somerset classics by re-creating them in royal Balmoral tartan, including the best-selling high-waisted trousers and a chic waist-length cape, a silhouette that has become synonymous with the Somerset brand."

The two exclusive pieces will be shown on the catwalk alongside the Somerset by Alice Temperley spring/summer 2014 collection, and other own-brand labels from John Lewis. Following the unprecedented success of her previous Somerset collections, Temperley will expand her offering for next winter - adding lingerie and designs for younger girls to the range.
