BIO: This season William Tempest's directional style takes on a romantic twist with the collection 'The Sirens' Song'. Inspired by sirens, the mythical half beauty half sea creatures whose enchanting voices seduce passing sailors to shipwreck, and the pre-Raphaelite paintings of John William Waterhouse and Herbert James Draper, the collection shows an ethereal, fantastical quality. Soft draping in frothy chiffons, georgettes and velvet devore mimic the waves of the sea and are juxtaposed against more defined silhouettes inspired by the structure of shells in stone-washed double duchess satins and triple silk organdies which lend a more structural element to the collection. The color palette is fresh and bright with corals, nudes and pale gray offset with splashes of lemon and raspberry, interspersed with one of Tempest's signature prints, this season depicting the siren of his own imagination. Spring 2011 also sees the continuation of William Tempest's footwear collaboration with Mechante of London following the success of the debut collection for Fall 2010. The collaboration includes a line of soaring 5-inch heels in an array of colors to complement Tempest's designs. William Tempest is stocked globally at stores including Harrods in London; Boutique 1 in Dubai and Beirut; Al Othman in Kuwait and at the Wynn Las Vegas in the US; has been featured in Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, and The Wall Street Journal; and has been seen on celebrity fans including Kate Moss, Nicole Sherzinger, Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson and Leona Lewis.
