Campaign: Ann Summers # Summer 2014
Designer: Giles Deacon
GILES DEACON has collaborated with Ann Summers on an exclusive lingerie collection due to launch on May 1.
"Wow, that would be different!" was Deacon's first thought when the suggestion was made. "Ann Summers has occupied such a unique place on the British high street and I thought it would be really interesting to see what I could come up for them with," he told us. "I loved the idea of designing a full capsule range for them.
" Deacon is a dab hand at collaborations, having worked with brands as diverse as Mulberry, Sky, Cadbury, New Look and many more, but approaching lingerie was a different challenge for the designer.
"From a quality perspective the fit, details and finish were of huge importance as I wanted it to look and feel as premium and as special as possible," he said. "I wanted it to appeal to existing Ann Summers customers - who were much more diverse than I had imagined - but to also resonate with a new audience and in doing so introduce some new customers to the brand.
" So who does the Giles for Ann Summers customer take her inspiration from?
"The mood boards were split into groups combining images from some of my favourite fashion photographers such as Steven Klein, Helmut Newton, Mert and Marcus, Guy Bourdain and David La Chapelle," said Deacon. "Sexy, provocative fashion images with a few vintage finds such as Betty Paige and Jayne Mansfield.
" But that will mark the end of collaborations for the foreseeable future. "It's going to be quiet over the summer as I am concentrating on starting the Giles e-commerce site in time for Fashion Week in September which is super exciting," he revealed.

Geen Mens Is Een Eiland
"Born in 1988 in France. Lives and works all around the world.
After completing her studies in French literature, Christine decided to become an itinerant photographer. She wanted to see the world through her own eyes after having perceived it through texts.
Her classical studies taught her that the style, the approach, the interpretation of the author/artist is crucial and prevail over the subject/story. With her camera, Christine transforms simplistic scenes into fantastic tales and unreal landscapes. A composition of three women running down a sand dune becomes a timeless representation of the Furies.Her touch always gives a sense of ambiguous beauty to her shots.
Christine's work belongs to a new generation of art photography -- , minimalist, poetic, and strong. Currently travelling around South Asia, the artist is preparing for her first series of solo exhibitions in 2014."
