Giles Deacon You are Our Beacon of Light

Words cannot express our joy at seeing the Giles Collection, by Giles Deacon for Autumn/Winter 2010. This man is a on a level of talent that most of us mere mortals can only dream of getting close to! It’s hard to find a place to start in assessing this collection.  Do we start with the amazing corseted dresses with luxurious ruffles that seemed to be light as air on the hips of the models as they swayed to and fro on the catwalk? Or do we start with the shearling jackets that looked so comfortable and stylish that not only will we be wearing them out in the London cold next winter but we also plan on sleeping in them as well? Perhaps we should just go straight into the way that Giles uses all the same colours that we have seen on the catwalks for the past three weeks but somehow his usage of these hues makes us think of Spring and Summer and not dreary, horrible and cold fall and winter.  Images speak louder than words. You be the judge but I have a feeling you will also agree this is one of the best collections yet from Mr. Deacon, n’est-ce pas?
