With a self-confessed magpie like approach to finding inspiration for her fashion designs, including a penchant for collecting memories, notes, photos and sketches, as well as keeping a hectic schedule organised, Alice Temperley has been using a Filofax for years. Alice was inspired by her experiences to create her dream Filofax for others to use, in the signature Temperley London delicate feminine style and tailored to her own specifications inside and out including bespoke stationery and content.
The Guinea harks back to the charm of vintage accessories. Made out of luxury quality pony skin, in a unique black and white print pattern inspired by guinea fowl feathers, the textured surface is soft to the touch. The cover is edged with a gold finished frame with a zip closure, adding an evening clutch feel. The interior features crocodile print calf’s leather and includes a smartphone pocket creating a practical accompaniment to modern day life.
The Affair is designed with luxurious black Italian lace bonded onto cream leather, inspired by lingerie against the skin, resulting in an elegant, sensual style. The Affair features beautiful detailing such as the patent leather strap and snap fastener with a signature Temperley London button and nude cord lined interior, with contrasting patent leather pockets. Containing a bespoke Flex by Filofax A5 notebook as well as a full complement of personal organiser stationery, The Affair is a perfect place to capture private thoughts, dates and memories.
Alice Temperley says, "I wanted to create something unique, beautiful and functional that contains personal information to help organise, plan and collect things for our busy lives. Throughout the design journey I looked at every element, from how I use my Filofax to my vintage collection. I thought a lot about how to combine its form with function and how to introduce Temperley London’s detail and femininity to Filofax. The Guinea and The Affair, two beautiful and stylish functional accessories, can be used and treasured for years."
The limited editions come with their own bespoke range of inserts featuring a varying selection of unique content. Alice Temperley shares some of her own ‘loves’ including favourite festivals and world markets. Talented chef Mark Hix, a personal friend of Alice’s, makes a contribution, providing especially selected recipes for the uniquely designed Filofax pages. Both The Affair and The Guinea are presented in elegant zipped pouches and contain an exclusive Temperley London for Filofax logo badge as a mark of authenticity.
Filofax is enjoying a timely renaissance in the hectic digital age, as self-fulfilled creative individuals hark back to the privacy, importance and simple pleasure of making hand written notes. Temperley London for Filofax is a truly remarkable collection which embodies the heritage of both premium brands and marries together beautiful form and function.
