Giles Deacon’s Capsule Collection Is Still Too Costly

We’ve had a huge crush on (relatively) new kid to the fashion block, Giles Deacon, the London designer who made his mark with an adorable Pac-Man-themed line, and has since been showing innovative delights up and down the runways. His designs have the edgy yet fun sensibility you find in any given Marc Jacobs collection, so we’ve been waiting for the day when Giles really hits the big time, and lands a deal with Target.

Which is why we jumped at the news that Giles Deacon has designed an exclusive capsule collection for high-brow online store The Corner. However, we quickly learned our lesson in getting hopes up too soon, when we realized that “capsule” doesn’t necessarily mean “less expensive.” The three-piece family, which includes a strapless dress, a full-bodied skirt, and a bow blouse, showcases Giles creative thinking in structure, but falls short on the imaginative colors and humor Deacon is known for. What’s worse—the “cheapest” item starts at about $800. We’re begging you, bring us something we non-filthy rich folks can wear! [TheCorner.com] Keep reading »

Sneak Preview: Hearting Topshop’s New Neurotica Line

Quite simply put, cool London girls think Neurotica is absolutely rad. Actually, the blog Not Just A Label sums the line up perfectly:

“The clothes are essentially feminine yet strong and assertive and most importantly highly wearable. The name of the label is indicative of the mood and aesthetic of the line and the fact that [designer] Victoria is a self confessed neurotic… designed with the kind of girl in mind who is a bit dark and weird but unashamedly cute.”

Sound like anyone you know? Thought you might be interested. So, of course, all-up-on-it Topshop buyers were snapping up the pieces last year, which led to this new capsule collection, to debut in the UK on the 21st and here in the States on September 6th. Seeing as how American girls love super soft jersey, cool illustrations and v. hot right now embellishments just as much as our British counterparts do, we’re gonna try to get in line early. Check out more tough-sweet looks after the jump! Keep reading »
