Somerset by Alice Temperley
The collection draws inspiration from the Temperley image and established motifs with a full range of fashion pieces including accessories. Influences clear in the collection include bohemian themes as well as a military edge and prints.
The 60 piece collection exhibits classic and much-loved Temperley favourites at an accessible price point whilst retaining Temperley’s signature high-end detail and design.
This collection marks a new chapter in fashion for John Lewis. This will be one of the most iconic collaborations the UK has ever seen.
Peter Ruis, Brand & Buying Director, John Lewis
Working with Alice to create Somerset by Alice Temperley has provided us with a unique opportunity to launch and build an entirely new and exclusive brand. We have worked incredibly hard on the quality, design and fabrication to ensure it meets the high demands of both Alice Temperley and John Lewis customers.
Jo Hooper, Head of Womenswear Buying, John Lewis
We have spent the last ten years building our lines and Somerset will complement our existing collections; it is a very accessible product that will take our aesthetic to a wider audience. I wanted it to be very much a collection of essentials and to design a collection that would provide a feminine and functional wardrobe for women in their everyday life. This collection is all encompassing, effortless and draws on our classics. John Lewis is a great partner as it stands for quality and is a trusted staple in everyone’s lifestyle. Integrity is paramount and as an independent British brand, we are thrilled to work with a trusted British retailer.
