This colourful collection brings whimsical illustrations by British couture designer Giles Deacon onto some of Aspinal's most iconic designs, creating a playful capsule collection of standout pieces designed for today's woman.
We invited Giles to "dress" his favourite Aspinal pieces and incorporate elements of couture design into each piece, and the result is a distinctive yet wearable collection that promises to bring the sophistication of the catwalk into any woman's every-day.
Moiré silk and leather - materials more commonly found in an haute couture studio, form a key part of the collection, dressing some of Aspinal's most iconic styles including the Mini Hat Box and Mini Trunk. Expressive illustrations of the Aspinal Girl - all drawn by hand on Deacon's iPad - are used playfully across the collection on pieces including the Hepburn Bag, Regent Tote and a Leather Diary.
Take the Micro Lottie Bag, the dreamy drawings on this piece illustrate the essence of the Aspinal woman - global, elegant and fun. Handcrafted from the finest ivory saffiano Italian leather, it's the ideal size to throw over your shoulder for a night on the town, or to squeeze into your cabin bag for a last-minute flight.
As a bespoke couture designer, Giles Deacon is known for creating pieces that perfectly reflect the personality and style of the women he dresses - whether it is Sarah Jessica Parker, Pippa Middleton on her wedding day, or the New York City Ballet. But who are the women in his illustrations? Each of the hand-drawn characters has been imagined to epitomise the distinctive styles and personalities of the Aspinal woman - they're always moving, never still and they always look like they've just stepped out of Vogue.
"The Aspinal Girl, the Giles Girl - they're out and about, they like the countryside, they like the town, they like fashion. They like a bit of whimsy and quintessential English playfulness." - Giles Deacon
All that's left to do is decide who you are. The Classic Minimalist, the Party Girl and the Jet Setter, The Country Girl, The Modern Millennial, the Social Butterfly or the City Girl.
