Winter is coming… And what better way to welcome the colder days than by slipping into something more comfortable and lounging luxuriously around the house? I love the idea of wearing the most decadent underwear or loungewear to do the most mundane things. So this is just what I did the other day, with the excuse that I needed to shoot photos for this post. I am sure you won’t contradict me when I tell you that it felt pretty damn special to be wearing a full-length satin and lace gown at 2pm on a Wednesday afternoon!
Said gown and all the other pieces featured in today’s post are my favourites from Giles Deacon ‘s second collection for Ann Summers. As you know, Deacon isn’t exactly collaboration shy, having worked with many brands so far, including the likes of Mulberry, Sky, New Look and a few others… But his first foray in lingerie design was last Spring, when he was invited to create a capsule collection for Ann Summers. The idea was to appeal to a very wide audience, reaching further than the usual AS fan base – and it is a success: I personally am a convert. Being a big Giles admirer, I love the idea that I can own a piece of his designs at a much friendlier price point. The satin gown I mentioned earlier wouldn’t be out of place at a black tie event for example.
Scroll down to discover my favourites from the range and make sure you retweet the tweet below as you could be in for a chance to win a £150 voucher to spend at Ann Summers (that would get you a beautiful set from the #GilesForAS range).
