Gothic romance from Giles in London

Giles 2015 Autumn / WinterBritish label Giles channelled gothic romance for its autumn/winter collection at London Fashion Week on Monday. Other outfits were printed with delicate images of bare branches, with flashes of silver suggesting a bracelet had become caught, and whimsical designs of mushrooms, ideas that came from designer Giles Deacon’s wanderings in a London garden. “I’ve been spending quite a lot of time in the Chelsea Physic Garden, which was started in 1673 and was intended to explore plants and healing and their properties from around the world,” he told reporters after the show.
