Giles Deacon had swans in mind this season, in particular the mechanical one at The Bowes Museum in the Yorkshire Dales, and a Cecil Beaton photograph called “Symphony in Silver.” Hence the red and black cygnet prints on everything from T-shirts to floor-sweeping, bias-cut evening dresses. The birds even fluttered in subtle silver jacquard over cream silk satin day dresses. The elegant collection took a tougher turn with a group of silver leather laser-cut skirts that looked as if they were edged in lace. Deacon also showed a host of evening gowns — he’s been selling increasing numbers of couture pieces — that ranged from the ethereal, including a lacy tiered number trimmed with ostrich feathers, to the theatrical in the form of a flowing white gown cinched with a blood-red bow at the back.
