This year has seen the brand’s popularity surge with features in consumer magazines and a number of celebrity fans, only increased by collaborations with designers such as Christopher Shannon.

The star of Google Chrome’s TV advertising campaign and the winner of Drapers’ Smaller Etailer of the Year, 2012 has certainly been a successful year for Deane.
