Pandora loves this… because the classiest tattoos come appliquéd onto floor length tulle. Temperley's London swagger has offered up a rock'n'roll alternative for those who shudder at the very thought of the regulation floor-length satin that's so prolific at red carpet events. With the vintage chic of the white tulle and the gypsy aesthetic of the silk crepe de chine 'tattoo' design, this gem of Temperley's circus inspired collection crosses the bohemian glamour-puss divide with great aplomb.
Inspired by her London surroundings and her mother's favourite 1920s lampshades, which she used to cut up to make accessories, Alice launched Temperley in 2000. A full decade later we see the launch of her diffusion line, Alice by Temperley; a move which has allowed her the opportunity to fine tune her mainline collection to an even higher standard of cool luxury. Not only is this luxe Long Tattoo dress the perfect example of the high quality Alice now expects of her mainline collection, it also remains fully on-trend sporting this season's favourite print. Featured in Rodarte and more famously in Chanel's collection, tattoos have been given the fashion seal of approval. What better way to cement Temperley's London edge than to marry this seasons hottest micro-trend to the world of full-on cocktail glamour.
