Giles Deacon | A Designer Who Has Always Drawn

Giles Deacon for Smythson

Giles Deacon for Smythson

LONDON, United Kingdom — When Giles Deacon developed a set of chic correspondence cards, each with a signature Giles sketch, in collaboration with Smythson earlier this year, the first batch sold out in just one day — on both sides of the Atlantic. For all you hard core Giles fans, the cards appear to have been re-ordered and are now available for sale again.

Even better, here at BoF we were lucky to have had a special sketch from Giles (you can see it below the jump), built around our new brand identity, in celebration of our exclusive Inside the Studio interview series with Giles which debuted earlier this week with Chapter 1, “Unstructured Exploration…”

On Monday, February 9, Chapter II will be released here on The Business of Fashion and on www.swarovskisparkles.tv. In the second installment, which focuses on Giles’ creative process, he tells us that he is “A Designer Who Has Always Drawn,” explaining how illustration forms a key part of his creative process by giving life and meaning to his ideas.

Stay tuned.
