London Fashion Week S/S 2013 - Giles horses around
Doutzen Kroes! Laser-cut leather! Big pouffy prom dresses! Ridiculous headwear! There was no mistaking the Giles show, which offered up plenty of the designer's trademarks with all his usual wit, albeit with a slightly more laid-back atmosphere than previous seasons.
We haven't seen a horse print used so extensively since Stella McCartney's Chloe days, but Giles bought it back, and took it to the next level, for look closer and you realise these were winged horses. Behold! Pegasus is the new owl (which was the new swallow). Hunt it down in a print immediately.
Elsewhere the laser-cut leathers got even more dramatic - previously we've seen them from Giles in metallics, this time they were on fishtail hems and black mini dresses, more detailed than ever before. The high street is going to have a hard job copying this in PVC without creating something that falls apart after seconds of wear.
The colour palette was - unsurprisingly - mostly the Spring / Summer 2013 failsafes of black, white and blue, and there was plenty of the sparkle that we've seen all over the London catwalks evident in the evening dresses towards the end of the show.
