Deacon + Ungaro: At Last

Remember the rumour I told you about a while back, which was considered confirmed a few days later? You know, about Giles Deacon designing for Ungaro? Well, now it’s confirmed, confirmed.

WWD, Draper’s and other fashion bibles tell us that Deacon is the new CD of the House that Emanuel built.

Giles, being cheeky. Wonder if Gareth Pugh at McQueen rumours will be confirmed next?

Deacon will continue to design for his own label and the collaboration with retailer New Look is still in the cards, too.

His first collection for Ungaro will be in presentation format during Paris Fashion Week, this October, with Deacon likely staying away from the runway for at least a couple of seasons. He told WWD: “I kind of want to get myself into the spirit of the house.”

I can feel the good energy, now. I knew he’d be a perfect fit!

Not sure how I feel about Pugh and McQueen, though, should that be next. Pugh and Olivier Theyskens have been riding the rumour mill all season, but my dears with all due respect to two very fine design talents, there is only one McQueen. Let’s see what happens… I think it should be someone who worked with Lee since the beginning, but I digress…

Congrats to Giles and congrats to Ungaro for what is sure to be a great new direction for the House!
