Taking time out from Londons relentless London Fashion Week show schedule we met up with Giles Deacon yesterday who introduced us to his latest collection a new jewellery line.
In the past we did big show pieces, but these are very workable into everyday life, Giles told us. Taking inspiration from his own clothing designs for the collection, he explained [I took] elements or themes recurring in past collections and recreated them [so that] if a girl liked a particular collection, shell be able to buy jewellery that reminds her of it.
If youre a fan of his boundary pushing designs youll love the edgy, gothic inspired jewels. There are still plenty of statement pieces standouts include an oversized gold spider ring, silver and gold cuffs with jewelled animal ears attached, as well as a multi-coloured crystal and feather statement necklace with matching bracelet. But if youre after something more subtle, youll find it here too in the silver animal head pendants and chunky gold rings set with semi-precious stones.
Naturally its already been snapped up Londons top stores including Selfridges, and will arrive in time for spring/summer 2010.More
