I love the Graphic greatness here. The Mod-Modern Top meets Wonder Woman Boots and classic shape tote full of fun.

It’s always great when the fabric’s patterns take you through the lines of the design. The bandeau and the detached sleeves were an mélange of both Current and centuries old. The Cameo patterned skirt was fitted and fluid in all the right places.

Layers upon layers of silk chiffon were reminiscent of a ruffle, yet sculpturally soft. The way the waves of fabric crossed the silhouette was pure asymmetrical elegance. The buttons were a nice detail and added a touch of texture.

There was a graceful balance between the flowing petal-like fabric- and yes there were photo realistic images of orchids on the material and the rigidly constructed garments, which looked like actual flowers. Both brought drama and elegance to Giles’ Collection.

I really enjoyed the entire collection, which was filled with sleek silhouettes with interesting details. Some of my favorites were the: Horizontal stripes head to toe jumpsuit with modern poetry gathered sleeves was a stunner down to the color combination, which was a wow factor as well. The puzzle like design of the collection was completely obvious, yet read very 70’s Mod meets romance. The last vignette had different versions of this  layered shirred skirt, which read as hair/fur, yet were simply squares of fabric, which were fringed to add textural quality.  On this particular look the fabric was also put as a shoulder detail a top a simple bodice and added a pop of yellow.

The whimsical factor here was taken from nature, inspired by Artist Eileen Agar, and brilliantly executed by Holly Fulton. Whether it was waves, seahorses, flowers or other nature inspired patterns. The juxtaposition of patterns, colors and proportions gave each piece a unique twist on a classic shape.

The ribbon candy waves of fabric on the arms of this dress added softness to the more rigid bodice. The juxtaposition of fabric textures and the softness of the blush color combined with the black wrapping cords waist accent made for an eye-catching moment.

These wide leg trousers adorned with modern DNA strand designs are powerfully pleated, high waisted, and definitely dramatic!
