Katie Grand tweeted this pic of a Giles dress, but the hanger really steals the spotlight, no?
For centuries, the world was missing a retelling of the nativity starring fashion people. Yesterday that void was filled--thanks, of course, to Love Magazine and Katie Grand's apparent ability to talk models into doing just about anything.
LONDON--Giles Deacon, much like his friends Katie Grand and Luella Bartley, is just innately cool. The East London space in which he showed his Spring 2011 collection last night--an old brick warehouse of sorts with low ceilings--was just cool. And the clothes he showed--some beautiful, some beautifully off kilter--were also, well, cool. Aggy Deyn opened with a Mohawk and a pair of pastel sneakers (or trainers, as the Brits call them) encrusted in Swarovski crystals. (Giles is yet another designer supported by Swarovski.) Other notable models included Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica Stam, Coco Rocha, Ashley Smith and footballer WAG Abbey Clancy--who is apparently three months pregnant and in the midst of a cheating scandal. Famous Brit Kelly Brook--I really have no idea what she actually does--was also there.
Giles Deacon has officially confirmed his new post as creative director at Emanuel Ungaro. "Various things have happened at the house recently which for legal reasons the company can't comment on - but I like to think of the bigger picture," Deacon told Vogue UK early this morning. "The house and its legacy have a lot more to them than that - and there will be announcements over the coming weeks about the business. I can't talk about them yet but various changes are being put in place."
