I'm a big fan of British fashion designer Alice Temperley's work; her main line Temperley London, diffusion line Alice by Temperley (I love my tiger jumpsuit), her Barbour Gold Label by Temperley collection and, extending beyond fashion and into luxurious stationery, her latest venture with a Filofax collaboration.

Her first collection of limited edition Filofax organisers launched during London Fashion Week in February and I attended the launch party - which out-partied all others in my book - where we sipped cocktails, ate English canap├ęs and mini fish and chips and ogled the beautiful vintage-inspired designs; The Affair (£375) made from Italian lace overlaying leather and The Guinea (£399) made from ponyskin.

The designer said "I was inspired to create a beautiful functional organiser that could be used and treasured daily, year after year. Over the years, I have always kept them to keep sketches, scribbles, pictures, recipes, and personal notes in. As you have them on you throughout your working days I wanted to have something bespoke and luxurious."

Alice and Filofax are continuing to work together and the second collection of designs will be launched during SS13 LFW, in September 2012. The partnership is a match made in heaven but my only criticism was the price points, however the second range is priced from £45 - £165.  Much better!
