Hands up right now, I love William Tempest, and after being slightly disappointed with his ill fitting collection last season I was very excited to see his Spring/Summer 2010 offering.
The catwalk was suitably packed but sadly started an hour late, however, it was worth the wait. Gorgeous structured dresses strutted down the catwalk in fabulous metallic grey and coral pink, yes that’s coral not peach.
The graphic print pieces were gorgeous, and the floor length gown was truly breathtaking. The wetlook dresses were sexy yet beautiful, and the knee length version had a sensual low back.
Tempest is the king of structure, and with his expert panelling he created figure hugging mini dresses and swimsuits. The bags were a new addition to his label, and they were wonderful.
I am gushing, but I can’t help it, in my opinion William Tempest is the next Matthew Williamson. He understands a woman’s figure, he isn’t afraid of colour and has a great eye for texture and silhouette.
This was a very smart range, perfectly finished and with a real flair. I didn’t feel that the jumpsuit worked as well as it should have done which was a shame. Overall though, William Tempest is definitely the one to watch and it’s only a matter of time before he is on schedule.
