Early 2000s Alice Temperly Silk Knit Plunging Dress
Alice Temperly founded her label in 2000, a year after graduating from the Royal College of Art and this dress is from one of her early collections. She has continued to grow and build her label and it has become one of the best loved on the globe for her sense of romance and femininity without be saccharin. I love this sexy little knit dress with its color combination of a neutral silk thread mixed with black and gold. This lies over an inner lining of fluid lingerie weight jersey so it very easy to wear, comfortable and travels perfectly. It is a sleek sheath of a fine, soft, silk knit that has a deep plunging keyhole at the front with one small hook that perfectly keeps your modestly in check. I love the shape this creates there. It skims and clings over the body but in a forgiving way, helped by that beautiful design that runs down the front and back and down each wide sleeve. Excellent condition
Lined in a nude lingerie weight nylon and slips on. Tagged a UK 12/US8. I see a tuny area of darkening on the front of the knit but it is not noticeable when on and very very light - too light to capture in the photos.
