Prehistoric cyber 50’s arachnid. One of the trickiest themes to pull off in Paris but Giles Deacon did it mostly with ease and irreverence. Overall the collection was youthful but quite grown up at the same time, particularly look two, a lady-like buttoned day-dress with a, what was it, a rock print? an animal print in lime? Either way it was pretty. The triceratops plush bag? Yes please. There’s something not quite right about his clothes and a different type of beauty is evoked, perhaps damaged. Was that lurex? PVC? Yes, some of the fabrics were very late 90’s. The effect was cheap looking and the irony was noted however a silver tulle net dress with silver stripes missed the mark, looking like a suburban costume shop sale bin item.
