The first sign of Giles

The first sign of Giles

I’m sure some of you may have been thinking ‘That crazy Susie.  I bet she was up at the crack of dawn this morning to cover the Gold collection by Giles Deacon which launched at New Look this morning.’  Ha!  Well, either it was the post-mugginess of my Amsterdam jaunt or my unbelievable amount of work, but this designer-highstreet collaboration totally passed me by.  I had seen SOME images.  I had read SOME editorial.  Then I saw SOME images from the launch party at the Marble Arch New Look branch last night with a lovely looking Agyness Deyn dressed head to toe in the collection (I’m convinced its the way she poses that makes everything look great).  Still, nothing really got me stoked and seeing as the collection is going to be delivered in huge batches, I’m not peeing my pants to buy it in a hurry.

However, it’s always good to see these things work in reality and at the Aslan Turk AW07-8 show tonight, I spotted a girl in the studded black patent shoes and a lovely grey stiff silk skirt with some great pleating (not particularly apparent in this poor photo unfortunately).  Feeling the fabric, my fears of the usual New Look-icky ness were somewhat dispelled as it did feel very nice.     So I guess, I’ll trudge up to New Look on Saturday to confirm my initial pleasant surprise.

    The fabric does feel nice but I tried on that skirt in the exact same shade and guess what? the top button fell off in the dressing room. >.<

    Those are the shoes I was after, but they sold out first – all the other footwear looked a bit cheap in comparison. I’ll be keeping my eye out though – they came in taupe too, which is gorgeous.

    I went to my branch today and as usual in boring N.Ireland the rails of clothes and shoes were untouched. I actually heard a girl pointing and sniggering at the abstract leopard print coat. Anyway so I tried on that pleated skirt in beige and another silver stiff bubble skirt but alas they were both still New Lookish, JiNG correctly pointed out the problem on that skirt! They used fabric covered white plastic buttons! The same buttons used on my Primark trench which I paid 4quid for!! After noticing that I didn’t even try on the other dress I bought in with me.
