Sometimes you just need a little drama in your life (Okay, maybe it is just that my life is full of drama lately and I am ready to embrace it even within my clothing!). Either way that is exactly what we got from the Giles Fall 2013 Collection. Designer Giles Deacon doesn’t shy away from his grand perspectives and always seems to put on a show with his collections. And fortunately for his audience this season was no exception.
There was volume, there was color, there was print and there was detailing. Perhaps the most decadent element was the gold work that showed up not only in metal adornments and what looked like gold leafing, but also in full dress that were further accented by laser cutting. Yes, Deacon did not hold back.
But don’t worry, the ornate detailing didn’t mean Deacon was taking himself too seriously! Dresses were paired with chunky knit hats and the models had a somewhat unkempt look about them. This felt somewhat tongue and cheek and completely true to his somewhat eccentric take on glamour.
What do you think of the Giles Fall 2013 Collection? What kind of woman do you imagine wearing these clothes? Do you appreciate the wit or is it all just too absurd for you?
