Pre-Fall 10: Giles
Giles Deacon's show took place in a porcelain factory, with industrial parts and metal music clinking in the background, models adorned in fluorescent nylon wigs, and their beautifully draped dresses were printed with giant wrenches and paper clips. This twisted landscape reminds me of the Industrial movement of the 90's, and also in mood, the movie, A Clockwork Orange. The collection is anything but retro, however. The silhouettes of these garments are sexy and sophisticated, and the mood is very now, which of course includes anything 90s.
