Savannah said: “I am delighted to become a part of the Designers at Debenhams offering with the launch of my new collection, Nine. The range is inspired by the eclectic and bohemian, chic way that cool girls dress and comprises of relaxed, casual separates. Naturally there is a particular emphasis on amazing knitwear which can be teamed with perfect jeans to embellished sequin skirts.”
Giles Deacon launched his first collection for GILES in 2004 and was named Best New Designer at the British Fashion Awards the same year. In 2006 Giles was named British fashion Designer of the Year, while celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Cate Blanchett have been spotted in his designs.
Giles said: “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 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’m excited that we have been able to deliver a luxury look and feel at high street prices.”
Both ranges will be available in selected stores and online at the end of August.
