Exclusive First Look: Inside Alice Temperley’s New Book

There was only one show that Pippa Middleton chose to attend during London Fashion Week – and that was Temperley London. Life imitated art as the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister marveled over the high society inspired collection of draped satins and organza prints, which was a fitting theme for the label’s 10-year anniversary. While the esteemed royal support is testament enough to her British roots, designer Alice Temperley – who was recently named a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by the Queen – is launching a book to celebrate a decade’s worth of Britannia style. Read on for an exclusive sneak peek.


With a foreword by Harper’s Bazaar UK editor Lucy Yeomans, True British: Alice Temperley contains a rich history of Temperley London’s style evolution. From memorable campaigns and editorials, to the designer’s personal photo archives, the tome provides a unique look inside the world of one of UK’s most celebrated designers.



True British: Alice Temperley is published by Rizzoli New York and can be purchased on October 4 here.
