Summers Most Alluring Collaboration
We are delighted to announce our collaboration with Alice Temperley’s eponymous label Temperley London, to create an exclusive collection of vibrant pieces for upcoming travels. This partnership celebrates two British luxury brands, who share a passion for heritage and craftsmanship.
Debuting Temperley London’s first foray into swimwear, this collection showcases the dynamic and vibrant prints the brand is known for, set onto classic Heidi Klein swimwear shapes.
The small capsule consists of two striking prints, both crafted into a one piece, a triangle bikini and a bandeau bikini with a matching pareo.
Our Creative Director, Heidi Gosman, collaborated closely with Alice Temperley – which was aided further due to them both residing in Somerset.
“I have long admired the elaborate and romantic prints which Temperley London is so known for and it’s been such an inspiring journey to work alongside Alice and translate these onto some of my favourite swimwear silhouettes. We are so excited to give our customers such a different and distinctive offering.” Heidi Gosman
'I have always wanted to offer our customers swimwear so working with Heidi Klein was an exciting opportunity. It made total sense as a partnership as we are very much aligned in our values and vision - both British, female led businesses dedicated to creating timeless pieces. The swimsuits and bikinis from this collection will be on my packing list this Summer and for many summers to come...." Alice Temperley MBE
Alice Temperley and her design team drew on iconic hand-painted prints to create two statement designs - fusing colours and nature for the bold Leopard and more whimsical, bohemian ambiance for the Dreamcatcher print.
Alice delves into more explanations on her inspirations below.
A vibrant, playful engineered print inspired by intricate macramé knot techniques used in the construction of Dream Catchers. This iconic print is interspersed delicately with crochet motifs and vibrant flowers.
“Dreamcatchers collected from my adventures triggered the inspiration for this print. Colours, proportions and design elements work together to bring a modern, relaxed print full of femininity, energy, emotions and dreams."
Alice Temperley MBE
Poppy & Leopard
Featuring a combination of stylised, hand-painted poppies engineered onto a bold leopard – this print is an iconic motif, synonymous with Temperley’s DNA.
The addition of the artfully placed, ultra-feminine red flowers - inspired by psychedelic art from the 1960's - creates a bold new composition with a rebellious, playful twist.
Each of these beautiful prints are translated onto Heidi Klein’s signature recycled honeycomb fabric in three shape options.
The Lace Up Square Neck One Piece sculpts the body and features a gentle scooped back as well as signature Heidi Klein support - thanks to a built in underwire and powermesh.
The other styles are both bikinis, the timeless Rope Triangle set which offers adaptable fit thanks to the adjustable ties. The Ruched Bandeau top and bottom offer a touch more coverage, and thanks to moulded cups and underwire, more support for those with ample cleavage.
Both looks can then be finished and styled with a complmenting pareo, which are adoraned with delicate tassel detaling around the circumfrance and illustrate the vibrant prints in full when fanned out. This can be tied as a cover-up, sarong and more.
