London Fashion Week: Giles

Considering the burning house of autumn 12 and the smashed glass motif of spring 13, Giles Deacon seems to be in a destructive mood.

Singed brown-toned edges were replaced with icy, sharp shards of glass, which Deacon recreated in laser-cut leather, photo prints, jewelled embellishment and textured, plasticky fabrics across pieces as simple as basic shift dress and as dramatic as the full-length black gown that closed the show. White, black, copper and grey dominated a collection that did eveningwear well.

In short The print will easily translate, as will the laser-cutting, but since Deacon was operating outside of the season’s prevailing trends it is unlikely to be hugely influential.
