True British: Alice Temperley Reviews
I wavered between two and three stars, because I'm such a fan of Alice Temperley's aesthetic, but I settled on two. I wanted a little more detail about the clothes and less souvenir snaps of her and "fabulous" friends and their boring parties. I'm bummed, because I was really looking forward to this book.
Adore! So very Alice Temperley, each page an adventure and a little welcome into Alice's world. A real gem!!
This is a beautiful book for any Alice Temperley fan. It balances photos of her work and journal style like writing. It truly captures her style and personality. It takes you along here journey to now, with warmheartedness and ease. After reading the beautiful tome, all I want is more.
Loved the pictures of the clothing! - but the narration was not so interesting or well written. Also a couple of weird pics including nudity.
My girlfriend is a designer. I gave it to her on our anniversary and she absolutely loved it. It's simply amazing, even when I leafed it, not having a designer's eye, I was absolutely marveled!
