Sneaky Peaky - Giles for New Look

Giles Deacon's 9th GOLD collection for New Look is hitting the shops on Monday (9th Nov) - woop! The omnipresent designer, is it just me or can you not move for a Giles designed something or other being touted about - has created a range of party dresses, high heels and glamazonian jewellery, ok so thats not what the press release says, that sounds more like this:

Giles’ 9th collection is based around the louche London vibe that is around at the moment – modern British glamour at it’s finest.

Dresses are the key purchase of the season – beautifully structured and encrusted with beads. This is red carpet dressing with a twist – go for the white shift with s/s and criss crosses of black or its sister monochrome dress: one shoulder and asymmetrically striped. The glamour continues with intricate bead work tops with puff sleeves, slouchy sequin vests and tunic style tops with panels of sparkle – all perfect to wear with this seasons skinny denims. Leopard print is updated in flashes of black, lipstick and sand.

Gold by Giles also features amazing accessories including pewter strappy heels with jewelled fronts, sequin shoe-boots, peep toes in lilac sequin and faux snakeskin gladiator cage heels. Jewellery has an art deco edge in rectangles of black and clear carrying through necklaces, cuffs and earrings.

My verdict? heart the dresses, love the skirt, like the boots, dislike the strappy sandals and I didnt like the jewellery at all so I left that off the post.

Get your goggles round the collection and see what you think...
