Last night ELLE attended the most fashionable Halloween event around the spooks-themed preview of Giless capsule collection for boutique Matches.
Over a lovely glass of fizz and a pumpkin canapé, ELLE asked the designer about his latest venture. Ive always loved what Matches do. Giles told us. 'They are a creative machine of a business, for one, and great supporters of British fashion, for another.
He added, We felt the time was right to do a mini capsule. Theres something for everyone in it because prices start at about £50 and will go up to £800. The range on show included ready-to-wear, as well as iPad cases, stationery and even dolls in gorgeous graffiti-esque Giles prints.
Following on from the Children in Need fashion Pudsey Bears, plus the designer dolls at the Port Eliot fashion symposium, are fashion toys the new big thing, we asked? I dont know!' Giles said, '[But] Ive always loved things like that. Its something I like to play around with.
Giless 16-piece range of clothes and gift items, from dresses to dolls, launches exclusively at Matchesfashion.com and in Matches stores from 13 November 2012. And anyone wishing to buy us a Christmas present from the range is more than welcome to.
