We are back with a few updates, including spring styles from Alexander McQueen, a look at Emilia Wickstead’s fall collection, but first we share several news updates. Our first comes via the office of New Zealand’s Governor-General.
More accurately, the news comes via the Governor-General’s Twitter feed. As noted on the screen grab shown above, a listing will be released next Monday of the best places to see the Duke and Duchess while they’re in New Zealand. The list will be on the Governor-General’s Facebook page, and the Twitter account will also offer the information.
The last offering under the contemporary line – which first launched in 2010 – will stay in stores until autumn/winter 2014.
“It makes sense to provide a consistent offering under one brand, Temperley London,” Temperley told us this morning. “This is the core of our business and where our voice lies – beautiful clothes, fine attention to detail, novel and luxurious fabrics and sourcing.”
The Duchess has worn pieces from the ALICE line, notably on royal tours. Below left we see Kate in the ALICE by Temperley ‘Beatrice’ dress during the Jubilee Tour in 2012 and a blouse from the line at the 2011 Calgary Stampede parade.
