Alice Temperley was ripe with ideas for Resort—perhaps too ripe. The collection lacked a cohesive theme, though the designer's jet-setting clientele will probably appreciate the variety of silhouettes on offer. Dresses came in delicate peasant styles, structured with origami-like folds, draped like togas, or in club-ready shimmery jersey. The designer also turned out menswear-inspired separates, little structured jackets, and leather vests with oversize studs.
