Behold! Giles Deacon's debut accessories range for Nine West
Giles Deacon has unveiled his début shoe and accessory collection for Nine West. The British designer has teamed up with the US retailer to launch a five-piece capsule collection featuring bags and shoes that bare the Giles Eek motif. The range comprises of a pair of ballerina flats, ankle boots and chunky peep-toe wedges.
"I was catering to the Nine West customer, so these pieces are for wearing from breakfast until bedtime," he told Vogue. The collection is still inherently Giles - there's still that London edge. It's not about the super-expensive though, not everyone can or wants to spend £900 on a pair of shoes. There's all day appeal about these pieces. I hope it'll give us more of a presence in the States - we'll be able to reach new audiences."
And that is his plan after all - to first conquer the US then worldwide domination.
"Of course we want to crack the States, but we're also making a concerted push to get into Asia," he added. "We have 11 stockists there already. I think it's a really interesting expanding market. We're still a relatively small, and certainly independent, label. We're keen to fly the British flag - London's doing such great work at the moment. London still has that anything-can-happen feel to it."
The Giles for Nine West capsule collection is due to hit stores this September. Check out the full collection via Vogue here.
