Daks pulls the plug on Giles Deacon's luxe line
It's all over red rover for Daks's luxury line and therefore its working relationship with head designer Giles Deacon.
Deacon confirmed that he was leaving the brand after it decided to axe its high-end catwalk line to focus on ready-to-wear.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Daks team and the opportunity that this collaboration gave me to work with such an established British brand," Deacon told Vogue. "It has been a rewarding experience on both sides and I wish Daks every success as they go forwards."
Deacon's autumn/winter 2008-9 collection for Daks (pictured left, modelled by Agyness Deyn) held during Milan Fashion Week in February, will mark the British label's last luxe collection. No doubt it will free up more time for him to work on his own collections.
