Taking time out from London’s 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, she’ll be able to buy jewellery that reminds her of it.’
If you’re a fan of his boundary pushing designs you’ll 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 you’re after something more subtle, you’ll find it here too in the silver animal head pendants and chunky gold rings set with semi-precious stones.
Naturally it’s already been snapped up London’s top stores including Selfridges, and will arrive in time for spring/summer 2010.
