Designer and high street collaborations are becoming a regular occurrence with the likes of Topshop, River Island and H&M churning out sell out collections, but now it’s time for another label to take the fashion spotlight. Feast your eyes on this latest exciting hook-up between British fashion designer Giles Deacon and Ann Summers with the range offering an eclectic mix of four key lingerie and erotic ranges and fashion-forward ‘sexcessories.’
This collaborative collection marks a first for Ann Summers as the brand makes a move towards extending its offering and widening its appeal to take on other high street stores. Combining sexy lingerie with a touch of wit, grandeur and playfulness, this fusing of two British fashion heritages in one seductive range will have women’s confidence soaring.
Giles Deacon said about the collaboration:
“It has been exciting to work with Ann Summers on the Giles for Ann Summers capsule collection – Ann Summers is an iconic brand recognised and loved by so many and which occupies a unique and successful position on the British high street.
I knew at the start when designing the collection that I wanted it to combine great shapes, thoughtful details and to be of the highest quality that would enable the pieces to be aspirational yet affordable. I also thought about different women who might be buying these pieces when designing the collection, with different aspects to their personalities whether that’s flirtation, dominance or playfulness - the finished collection enables them to pick and choose and have some fun with all of the ranges as a collection of lingerie that can be the foundation for any outfit or occasion.”
Incorporating hand-drawn laces and prints designed exclusively by Giles for Ann Summers, the diverse mix of beautiful and sensual lingerie pieces are complimented with a hosiery range featuring unique prints and patterns. From babydoll dresses to plunging corsets and intricately detailed garlands and bra and knicker sets, the enticing designs have been created to draw focus and captivate those who dare to steal a peek. Fashion-forward ‘sexcessories’ include a rose gold intertwined necklace and cuffs, lurex lace eye masks and a feather tickler for women wanting to go for the full attire.
The premium collection does come with a higher price tag than what you would normally expect from Ann Summers, but all the pieces have been crafted using quality luxe fabrics and bespoke patterns which are completed with a premium finish. The hotly anticipated Giles Deacon for Ann Summers Spring/Summer 2014 Collection launches exclusively in stores and online today.

If sports luxe dressing wasn’t cool enough, check out Adidas’ hot new collection for Spring/Summer 2014! The sports brand has hooked-up with Brazilian label The Farm Company to bring to the UK fashion scene a selection of amazing off duty stylish pieces that will make you want to ditch all other trends!
This exclusive collaboration between two of the world’s most evocative brands sees iconic styles from Adidas’ Originals range, such as the tracksuits and cult trainers, get reworked in a series of four exotically beautiful prints developed by The Farm Company to blur the lines between sport and street style in an explosion of tropical colour.
Blonde bombshell Mollie King has once again teamed up with Oasis to bring high street shoppers her second Loved by Mollie collection which features key wearable trends for Spring/Summer 2014. Unveiled not too long ago at an intimate dinner at the Boundary Rooftop in Shoreditch, The Saturdays singer selected her favourite picks for the new season which will no doubt fly off the rails once launched!
Branching out from music into fashion has proved a great move for Mollie, who was recently signed by Next model Management, which is no surprise really as she has always been praised for her impeccable personal style and inspiring approach to putting together flawless understated looks. Following on from the success of her first collection for the affordable label, this latest covetable edit features Mollie’s favourite Oasis pieces for the months ahead.
Perfectly encompassing the star’s style, the SS14 curated range comprises of chic co-ordinates, pretty dresses, longer length hero skirts, including pencil and midi designs, hot leathers and graphic prints.
Talking about this collaboration, Mollie says:
“I’ve always had a real affinity for Oasis and leapt at the opportunity to work on a second collection with such a fabulous fashion brand. I’ve learnt so much throughout the process and cannot wait to see the new collection in store. The new collection really offers something for everyone with an edit that combines trend-led looks alongside more classic pieces – just like my own personal style!”
I’m sad to admit I missed Mollie’s first seasonal collection offering, but this time round I won’t let these outstandingly fashionable pieces slip through my fingers! I’ve set my sights on the floral top and shorts combo as well as the denim dress. Both looks are classically feminine and will be easy to rock this season courtesy of their clean, fresh designs and classic silhouettes.
