Deacon is designing a 26 piece collection, inspired by the 1960's and 70's, for Autumn Winter 15 under Debenhams’ /Edition range, The line features vibrant and quirky prints as well as floor length, figure flattering trapeze skirts, and will be extended with an extra nine pieces for Christmas.

The launch date is set for September and the collection will retail for £45 -£180. It is modeled by it-girl Daisy Lowe.

Debenhams Group Trading Director, Suzanne Harlow says, “We are delighted that Giles has come on board as a designer for the /Edition range at Debenhams.   Giles is the perfect candidate to join the /Edition concept which offers designs from cutting edge talent.  His collection complements our existing Designer ranges with an offering that is younger and features contemporary pieces with Giles’ characteristic design twist.”

Giles Deacon says, “The woman who wears my clothes has a playful style and loves to dress up.  She is fearless yet light hearted, and when she puts on a piece of clothing on I want her to feel amazing as well as make heads turn. I feel like we have made a collection that is true to my signature style and I am excited that we have been able to deliver a luxury look and feel at high street prices.”

The other current Debenhams /Edition designers are Preen, Todd Lynn and Abigail Ahern, and past names include Jonathan Saunders, Jonathan Kelsey and Roksanda Ilincic.
