I do like his collections and think this is a good one which will keep the department store buyers happy. I think he is a nice guy too - looks a bit nerdy.



Softgrey, from Showstudio.com
Biography
Born in 1969 in County Durham, designer Giles Deacon made a marked impression in debuting his own label 'Giles' with an Autumn/Winter collection for 2004. Deacon trained at St Martins School of Art in the early 1990s. It was on the strength of his graduating collection -which featured nature references and prints- that a meeting with Tom Ford was set up, and he was invited on board to take up a series of appointments with fashion houses in Paris and Milan. His most high-profile appointment came in 2000 when he joined Bottego Veneta as head designer to Katie Grand's stylist role. The hard-edged debut collection -using white, metallic and neon- hyped the reputation of the house considerably. Shortly afterwards he was re-appointed to another position designing for Gucci itself. His 'Giles' collection is a closer reflection of his own tastes, much less confrontational than his work at Bottego Veneta, though he is again collaborating with uber-stylist Katie Grand. The emphasis in his A/W 2004 was on strict, 1940s curves, tweed pencil skirts and silk blouses with pussy bows. Another close creative collaboration is with illustrator and textile designer Rory Crichton. He worked closely with weavers Stephen Walters and sons - a reflection of his commitment to use British mills as far as possible.

You're welcome!

I remember that neon leopard blazer in my nightmares!! and you're so right, that collection didn't live up to the hype.

I think he saved up all the good stuff for himself!!

I've been curious to see what kind of collection he would turn out for this season after last seasons--I liked his approach with the accessories with the clothes and the print. As for this season, I like it as well...he shows obvious restraint--but like you soft grey I am compelled. I like the black jacket with the red hat. Here is more info from style.com...

Spring 2005

For all the hype surrounding Deacon, it's still too early to say whether or not he's really going anywhere. He may have earned local raves for his seventies-suburban-ladylike vibe, but hardline critics find it impossible to imagine what woman could possibly wear those jazzily striped jacquard suits with the matching 6-inch wedges. Or find an occasion equal to one of his flowing printed scarf dresses or electric-blue sunray-pleated dinner gowns. Some might mutter, too, about the overtones of Vivienne Westwood tailoring—not to mention a smidge of Jean Muir here and quite a lot of pure Stepford Wife cheese there. On the other hand, there's enough that is genuinely odd in Deacon's aesthetic to make it almost grotesquely fascinating. He has a small boy's interest in animals and insects, which crop up in motifs of apes, bees, scorpions, and lizards, or outsize marquetry plaques, which he fashions into vast pendants or bags. All of which provides a certain unsettling undercurrent to the pseudo-glam pastiche. That may not be a bad thing in a season of too much normality. But the jury's still out.

Quite hit and miss.

I think that yellow dress on Eva Herzigova is essentially hideous, but there is something about it I really like, the embroidery and pom-poms are cute.

I love the fabrics and the prints in use. I love this overall, despite the 'misses' present.
