Giles Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – London Fashion Week

Summer consists of not only the sunny and warm days, but also of melancholic evenings and dark nights. The Giles spring/summer 2014 collection is on the runway of London Fashion Week to remind us of that. “I had a darker, more melancholy summer in mind — and definitely not flower gardens and pastoral landscapes,” said Giles Deacon. “After last season, I was satisfied with the direction we were going in, and I decided I wanted to do a non-flowery summer collection,” he added. “I wanted a melancholy to it and none of that summer fun.”

These ideas find their reflection with the help of two major tricks: melancholic prints, which are Glen Luchford’s emotional and appealing photos and the bat themes, coming as prints and then expanding to the level of head decorations. The shapes of the outfits vary from A-shapes dresses to coatdresses and floor-length elegant garments. The necklines carry the touch of diversity as well, ranging from bateaus to scoops. The main fabrics used for the pieces are chiffon and gazar carrying the photo-prints of Kate Moss, Amber Valletta, Guinevere Van Seenus and Amanda de Cadenet. The melancholic effect of the pieces, is however, slightly broken with the bright and funny lip mark designs appearing on the garments that follow.

A slight draping of the dresses was also looking good in the frames of the Giles spring/summer 2014 collection. In reference to colors, we notice the change from evening-reminding calm and dark tones to light pink and violet tones, creating some energizing mood. Following the awesome and cute cocktail dresses, comes the second key element of the Giles collection, which represents the darker side of the summer, that is the night. What if not the bats could tell us about the life at night? From time to time interrupted with some fluffy motives of several light pieces, the batwings overtake the runway, starting from bat prints on variously shaped yet very elegant dresses and due to their further expansion, reaching the huge black bat wings put as headwear with some garments. Melancholic and mysterious, like the night, the woman’s image created by Giles this time can be best described as simply stunning.
