William Tempest for River Island Debuted in London

William Tempest's exclusive River Island Design Forum debuted at London Fashion Week on Friday. The range, which will be available online and in selected stores in October, was showcased in a short film as part of the River Island Fash/On Film initiative in conjunction with the British Fashion Council.

The 13-piece William Tempest for Design Forum collection was inspired by ancient Egyptian mythology, 1920s interiors and the work of M.C. Esher. The scarab beetle, a symbol of wealth and power for ancient Egyptians, acts as a motif which runs throughout the range via prints and finishes.

Key pieces from the collection of effortless eveningwear separates and accessories include a sequinned chiffon shirt dress, an art deco plunge back column dress and laser cut heels. Black and nude fabrics with opaque contrasts feature heavily alongside textiles designed exclusively for the collection, including a tessellated design and a geometric art deco pattern.

Fashion editors, models and film-makers including Caryn Franklin and Poppy Delevigne attended this season's Fash/On Film event which included films featuring Anna Dello RussoLaura Bailey and also William's River Island Design Forum film. William's film, titled "It Will Not Always Be Summer" was created by director Ryan Hope. The exclusive trailer can be seen online from the River Island website.
