Sharp tailoring, asymmetrical shapes, vitaminic colors
combined with nudes characterize William Tempest's
ss11 collection of amusing girlie dresses.
The Cheshire born British designer unveiled his collection
“The Sirens' Song” during last New York Fashion Week
at Lincoln Center in September.

Heavily inspired by the legendary sea creatures and
Pre-Raphaelite paintings of John William Waterhouse
and Herbert Draper (you may take a look here), the
young designer's collection shows ethereal, fancy
outfits in a bright color palette.

Soft draping in frothy chiffons in which georgettes and velvet
devoré with mermaids shadows or stone-washed double duchess
satins and triple silk organdies follow defined silhouettes
like sea waves.  William's eager spirit, his own sensibility,
the top quality of his brand's products and, last but not least,
been worn by celebrities like Kate Moss, Emma Watson or
Mrs. Beckham to name a few, made them stocked
globally in high profile stores.
