This season Giles Deacon has rediscovered his artsy side. Bidding farewell to his stuffy previous collections, flecked with stiff daywear for ladies who lunch, the designer has finally mustered up the courage to show something truly original. A cross between Neo-Impressionism and Sur-realism, the concept of the collection was positively original. Borrowing from Elseworth Kelly’s theory of color and optics and merging that with an affinity for stripes, polka dots and leopard spots, Giles has successfully reinvented his namesake label.

Sending out Carmen Cass in an outsized gold and silver knit sweater vest, the talented designer hinted at a vibrant, distinctive and light-hearted lineup. Voluminous shapes, unique silhouettes and unusual accents were noteworthy, but an eye searing fuchsia dress, with angular shoulders (a nod to Thierry Mugler) was outright fabulous. It is welcome surprise to watch Mr. Deacon’s artistic sensibilities evolve so tastefully. Bravo.
