Now in his second collaborative season, Giles Deacon has maintained a smart perspective on his role at Fay: “It’s not about moving mountains,” he said. “It’s about being sympathetic to an already successful business.” Those wise words from the designer and budding lensman, translated to a trench, biker jacket and a bunch of nylon baggies all blooming with a pink peony photograph taken by Deacon himself. The print was one of several pragmatic but playful ways — his floor-length take on the polo dress was another — Deacon worked his extravagant evening style within classic Fay parameters. As for the rest of Fay’s collection, it covered all the basic bases with trenches in brights and neutrals, and a trapeze jacket that was particularly well-done.
