Giles Deacon x Cutler and Gross

The designs of Giles Deacon are extraordinary and beautiful. Eccentric British fashion at its very best. The award-winning couturier who blends craft and wit partnered with Cutler and Gross over five years to create unconventional yet show-stopping eyewear. Oversized, utterly unique and wonderfully playful

Deacon creates womenswear that challenges the traditional fashion houses in every way. From Pac Man and giant images of Kate Moss to pop culture references, his designs are humorous, dark and sexy. As if his CV of high profile collaborations and industry accolades wasn’t full enough, he can now add to this one of the most high profile wedding dresses of recent years, that of Pippa Middleton.

Not to be overshadowed by an almost-royal wedding, we thought it was time to celebrate another perfect marriage - that of Giles Deacon and Cutler and Gross. Indeed, five years working at the drawing board with our Design Director Marie Wilkinson resulted in five seasons of bold, head-turning, brilliantly British eyewear. Feast your eyes on the creations below...

SPRING/SUMMER 2010


Giles Deacon’s Spring/Summer 2010 debut in Paris was a celebration of pop art, neon and Scooby Doo! Humour led the way in this brilliant collection of prom dresses and kooky accessories. Dinosaur bags and kitten heels were teamed with detailed froufrou dance dresses and festoon collars.

The Giles Deacon x Cutler and Gross sunglasses for the season were inspired by the fabrics and themes of the collection. Each frame was oversized and upswept, interpreted in an array of bold colourways. A candy floss cute sticking plaster pink, watermelon and classic black completed the totally original and ultra-fun collection of frames. Rihanna was their biggest fan that summer, sporting the funky frames for all manner of festivity.

SPRING/SUMMER 2011


Giles Deacon’s Spring/Summer 2011 show encapsulated his now renowned kooky, fun themes as wearable art. Models strutted out with Pac Man patterns and sexy colourful silk dresses, fitted to the waist and hips to maximise the feminine form. Hibiscus prints screamed summer and worked perfectly with glitter and pearls to glamourise it all up a notch; lady-like with a twist around every corner.

Following suit, the Cutler and Gross and Giles Deacon collaboration frames featured mirrored lenses and were in the coquettish upswept style of the 50s. Inspired by the glamorous Daphne of Scooby Doo, a Deacon favourite, the sunglasses were red acetate with turquoise mirror, black with blue mirror, dark turtle with blue mirror, and sugar pink with green mirror. Utterly unique and wonderfully playful, each frame exudes glamorous chic with a touch of shiny sexy fun thrown in for good measure.

SPRING/SUMMER 2012


Giles Deacon took a new turn for this 2012 Spring Summer collection. It was all about dreamy lightness with a special homage to Cecil Beaton, whom the designer called ‘the Andy Warhol of his day.” Swan headdresses teamed with lace and ostrich plumes portrayed a Beaton beauty that floated wistfully down the catwalk. Tiered lace and laser cut leather with a simple white T proved the designers ability to make sexy beautiful yet contemporary too. This modern theme punctuated with sporty briefs and bandeau brought the collection into the future, and the future was bright!

For this season, Cutler and Gross and Giles Deacon took inspiration from the swan and produced an upswept acetate frame, in combinations of black with coloured lenses, black with electric blue lenses, solid red with electric red lenses and grubby white with ombre brown lenses. Classic and slightly retro in shape but totally modern and unique in the colour ways and overall style.

SPRING/SUMMER 2013


Giles Deacon draws from all manner of culture and history for his inspiration and this year was no exception, uniting his two sides, the cartoon kookiness and the intensely sophisticated sexy style. Deacon explored the use of black and white laser-cut leather and silk printed mini dresses. Illustrations and photo-prints of smashed glass and jewellery brought shirts and dress to life. A sexy and slick collection that paid homage to Jayne Mansfield and her place in pop culture: “She is such a graphic figure, comic and tragic. And is defined by that car crash.” This Deacon collection was defined by class, style and super craftsmanship and design.

For Spring/Summer 2013 the Giles Deacon x Cutler and Gross sunglasses encapsulated this feminine graphic collection. An oversized, bold oval acetate frame was embellished with Swarovski crystal and pearls, placed along the top edge like the spines on a dinosaur’s back. The frames came in green turtle, black, layered nude on black and pearlised pink - each one a stand-alone statement in themselves, framing the face and creating their own perfect little spectacle.

SPRING/SUMMER 2014


This season Giles Deacon turned to Glen Luchford’s photography of the 1990s period. Images of Kate Moss and Amber Valetta printed onto clean lined dresses and teamed with adidas trainers formed the main body of the collection. The look was fresh, not summery and flowery but avant garde and edgy. With a random section on bats, Deacon then turned it up to sexy, dark and stormy. Lace layered dresses in black and peach and asymmetric black tulle pleats were juxtaposed against another section of pop-art lip printed summer coats and mini dresses. As we have come to expect from Deacon, nothing predictable and always fundamentally highly crafted beautiful clothes.

Say hello to the Cutler and Gross and Deacon “Marcie” sunglasses. Marcie is a girl who featured in the pre-collection print and the glasses in her namesake are of 1960s ilk with a fabulous stoke of 90s pop art too. All made in oversized acetate, the glasses came in black with super silver mirror, peach with a washed out blue mirror and 2 others printed frames taken directly from Giles’s collection. Funky and fun with the added glamour we come to expect from these two paramount fashion brands.

SPRING/SUMMER 2015


Giles Deacon’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection took a cue from the artist Walton Ford and his rather menacing pairings of wildlife. Serpents twisted around dressed, leopard and birds of prey were emblazoned across pyjama suits and flowing kaftans. Alongside this were geometric tailored bright pinks dresses and stripy 50s style skirt suits. A new sort of pared down style was also relevant, with little day dresses and oversized sweaters with printed claws. The collection was modern, unique and strong.

This season, Cutler and Gross and Giles Deacon created a capsule collection of sporty, acetate aviator sunglass. Available in matt white with a soft fuchsia pink lens, as well as ink with multilayer violet lenses, the frames oozed summery, glimmering style. Another frame sported the Giles Deacon bleach print backed onto ice blue with multilayer white mirror lens and black with imperial green mirror lenses. Each frame had the bold, show stopping punch which by now had become the signature of this unique collaboration.
