Giles doesn`t seize to amaze and excite me! I love the way he arranges patterns and fabrics. The dresses have super-amazing details and still never look overloaded. I love the femininity & tenderness of the first three dresses and the cigarette-burn-holes add a notion of fragility - a kind of injury which creates a new surface. I find this "beauty through destruction" connotation poetic and metaphysical.

How do you like the collection? What do you think about the cigarette-burn-holes print? Hit or miss?


  1. Im following on Bloglovin!

    I would like to share my blog with you, and feel free to follow back if you like it.

  2. I usually agree with your aesthetics, this time I actually don't like the burned holes. There is something of a novelty feel there for me... Though you can tell it's exquisitely made!
    But I love the combination of grey and red he did.


  3. Beautiful collection. So I don't know if you've noticed lately but I've completely changed Homme a' la mode around, got rid of most of my content, and begun to put together a staff of writers,stylists, photographers, etc to give it a more editorial feel... well anyway, for a while I've been getting these invitations to press events in Germany mostly sometimes in London and in July was invited to Berlin Fashion Week, I couldn't go because I had summer classes and I live in the States, I was wondering if you would be interested in attending these events in the future and writing for me. I would obviously include a link back to your blog, and your name as all that, along with inclusion onto the Homme a' la mode masthead. Tell me what you think, my email is:
