Alice Temperley took stuff up a notch too, sharpening her familiar feminine aesthetic with a crisp, monochrome-heavy way. The collection used solid graphic lines and witty surrealist touches to create clothes that were able to be both intimate and sharply memorable.

The sequins, silks and beading in the collection all had a toned-down quality to them, too. One ankle-grazing, blue sequined skirt was grounded with a snug, cable-knit sweater. And another high-waisted black maxi skirt, in panels of tulle and sequins, was paired with a mannish, high-necked clothing with a black neck tie – drawn, the custom explained, from Anthony van Dyck paintings.
