The Spring ’14 collections are under way in London, and will be followed by the shows in Milan and Paris. Before their 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 previews at 140 characters or less. Our entire selection of Spring ’14 previews is available here.

WHAT: “Temperley London SS14 is inspired by the good life spent on the Mediterranean coast. Long summer days filled with color and romance…”— Alice Temperley. The designer sent us a snap from her studio, above.
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.
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!).

WHO: Temperley London, designed by Alice Temperley

Mein Gott! Karl Lagerfeld has a starring role in singer Jean-Roch’s new music video—as a kind of angel. A white-clad Lagerfeld floating on a cloud appears at the beginning of the clip. “You were never told Saint-Tropez is paradise?” Lagerfeld quips. [Fashionologie]
Kate Moss is exercising her charitable muscles. Last night, the fashion icon made an appearance at Claridge’s Hotel, where she helped auction off a painting by her close friend Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones. The auction took place as part of a fundraiser in honor of Marie Curie Cancer Care, and the painting—a portrait of Rod Stewart—sold for £12,000. [Telegraph]
Agyness Deyn’s not ending her acting career on the stripper pole. The model-slash-actress, who plays a stripper in the upcoming remake of the 1996 cult-classic Pusher (due out this summer), has just been chosen to star in the screen adaption of the legendary Scottish novel Sunset Song. This time around, she’ll play Chris Guthrie, “the resilient heroine.” [Vogue U.K.]
Amanda Lepore wants her Louboutins, and she wants them now. The famous transgender artist and nightlife personality stopped by the shoemaker’s New York sample sale yesterday and upset more than a few people when she decided to walk in ahead of the reportedly 300 women and men already waiting in line. Understandably, only ten at a time were being let in and shoppers were limited to a max of eight shoes. [Page Six]
Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson, and Maison Martin Margiela are getting a new neighbor. This November, Temperley London is opening its first flagship store—a six-floor Georgian space on Bruton Street, in London’s Mayfair. The store will house all three of the designer’s collections, including Temperley London, Alice by Temperley, and Temperley Bridal. [Temperley London]
The just-wrapped Spring ’13 Bridal Market Week in New York was a much more colorful one than usual. It was Vera Wang who led the charge, finding herself in a full-on love affair with red, a color that’s actually traditional for Hindu brides. The designer sent dresses down the runway in shades from bright scarlet to deep burgundy, with not a white gown in sight. Romona Keveza also flirted with crimson, sending out a full-skirted red number with intricate flower details as her final look. Oscar de la Renta experimented with color as well, with a fire engine red Spanish-style gown complete with a towering headpiece.
But traditional brides have no cause for concern. White still holds court. White dresses were plentiful in Temperley London’s Ophelia bridal collection, from simple ethereal gowns to lavish, embellished pieces in Chantilly lace, crinkled chiffon, and light georgette. Monique Lhuillier, who has plans to open up her first store in June, showed a similar aesthetic, translating “fantasy” and “dreamlike” inspirations into elegant dresses dusted with sequins and draped with tulle. And Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig offered white in their signature Hollywood glamour, with a lineup of lavish silk and organza gowns decorated with hand-embroidered beads. Jenny Packham also had ladies of the silver screen in mind, referencing 1930′s cinema sirens like Vivien Leigh and Bette Davis in her collection of free-flowing, empire-waist dresses in simple crepes and antique lace. Those elements lent heritage appeal to the gowns, which looked as if they had been delicately preserved and passed down for generations. Carolina Herrera walked the line between timeless and trendy, showing classic, intricately detailed numbers along with more modern looks featuring peplum waists and pantsuits, which also made an appearance at Oscar de la Renta, who paired his with a dare-to-bare crop top for the more fashion-forward bride.
