William Tempest designs range for River Island

British fashion designer William Tempest has designed an exclusive collection for River Island.

The range of specially commissioned pieces was inspired by ancient Egyptian mythology, 1920s interiors and the work of M.C. Escher.

There are beautiful sequinned party dresses in nude and black which are perfect Christmas-party fodder.

Take a look at a gallery of the collection here.

The peachy flapper dress with a beaded hem is sure to be an instant hit.

If you want to inject a bit of glam into your wardrobe without going the whole hog, there are two beautiful sequinned tops which would look rockin' paired with jeans.

Perhaps my favourite piece from the collection has to be the laser-cut peep-toe shoe boot. The perfect accessory to add some edge to any look!
