The Split-Second Preview: Temperley London

The Fall ’14 Ready-to-Wear collections are under way in London, and will be followed by the shows in Milan and Paris. Before the new clothes hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Fall ’14 previews is available here.

Short Stuff and Pretty Pinks: Fall ’14 Bridal Breaks The Mold

-------

Vera Wang BridalLeave it to Vera Wang to electrify the Fall ’14 bridal season with a veritable rainbow of high-impact pink gowns. “It was very ironic, I thought, to show pink for winter, and I wanted to explore ultimate femininity—but with an edge,” offered the designer of her blush, rosebud, and coral wares. Wang, who in the past has shown bridal looks in bloodred and black, was influenced by the “glamour of old Dior,” but she modernized that concept via strictly draped bodices, thoughtful beading, and blossoming origami flower embellishments, which sat on the skirts of full tulle options or mermaid silhouettes.

Carolina Herrera also turned out a nontraditional collection—though hers broke the mold in length, not hue. “I got married the second time in a short dress,” said Herrera. “I’ve been going to a lot of weddings lately, and I see the brides wearing long gowns for the ceremony, and suddenly they change into a short one. So I thought, why not short?” she said of her knee- and tea-length frocks. Don’t mistake short for simple, though—sequins, elaborate floral appliqués, lace, feathers, pearls, and moonstone all made an appearance in the range, as did pockets, which gave the dresses a fresh, youthful feel. Don’t fret, traditional brides; most of the gowns are available for order in full-length styles as well.

Short cocktail dresses turned up at Marchesa, too. Inspired by The Secret Garden, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s Fall outing was positively enchanting, and included scads of chantilly, point d’esprit, handmade floral appliqués, and pearl-studded tulle. The pair also offered longer gowns with trumpet skirts and delicate lace sleeves, which were terrific options for those wanting a classic look.

Designer Diary: Alice Temperley’s Postcard from Dubai and Doha

-------

London-based designer Alice Temperley recently traveled to Dubai and Doha, Qatar, to shoot her latest collections and open a new boutique. Here, Temperley shares the details of her desert adventure, and some behind-the-scenes campaign snaps, exclusively with Style.com.
 
Alice Temperley's Trip to Dubai 
Our first store in the Middle East opened in the Dubai Mall three years ago. Earlier this month, I traveled back to the hot, hot, hot UAE to open our second store, in The Gate mall in Doha, and to shoot our Titania Temperley Bridal campaign and our Temperley London Fall collection, Byrds. A few people from the London HQ, and my little sister, Matilda Temperley, came along. Matilda is a professional photographer, and she shot the campaigns in a desert location just outside Dubai.

We were up bright and early to shoot on the sand dunes during sunrise at 4:30 a.m. We shot until 9:00 a.m.-ish, when it reached a sweltering 117 degrees (and it is not even summer yet!).
