Welcome to Giles’ house of drama: high, ruffled collars, plenty of prim bows, and noir lipstick cropped up for Fall. The theatrics continued until the show’s finale, when Anna Cleveland closed the show with a few twirls of her pleated frock. A bit Elizabethan and a bit Gothic, Giles Deacon‘s latest showing alternated between wearable and costume-y; a ruffled white frock with a saccharine sweet orange bow wouldn’t fare well in everyday life, but a black and white patterned overcoat felt chic and du moment. With plenty of capes to choose from, including a basic black version, a patterned iteration, and a velvet printed number, there were a few more modern silhouettes mull over.
