Giles Deacon has become known worldwide for his eccentric and whimsical designs, but for Resort 2012 he is presenting pieces that are much more subtle in silhouette, though loud in terms of print and pattern. The pieces are feminine and girlish at times and sexy and mature at others, providing the Giles woman with a varied selection as well as giving other women the opportunity to see his brand in a whole new light.
Giles tapped model of the moment Nyasha Matonhodze for the collection and in it, she models a slew of looks including flowy silk satin printed gowns, work-appropriate wide leg trousers, boxy cropped blazers, flirty mini dresses and so much more. His inspiration for the collection comes from art: Paul Delaroche’s The Execution of Lady Grey and Jean-Marc Nattier’s Portrait of Mathilde de Canisy, Marquise d’Antin. The influence can be felt especially in an adorable navy mini dress with a pleated back which will definitely be a wearable piece of art for any woman who owns it.
