Giles Accessory Launch Party

After working solidly for two months it was time to break out, and party hard. My first stop; the Giles accessory launch party. A bright pink Giles mouse head made entirely of flowers was the first thing to greet us as we entered the room. Either side of the mouse were mirrored tables covered in beautiful jeweled pieces and laser cut plastic in dinosaur and mouse shapes! Cocktails flowed fast and freely in the rooms above Somerset house, the balconies either side were exceptionally beautiful with stunning views over the night-lit courtyard and the Thames. On one of these Balconies I met a wonderful journalist called José, from the Spanish magazine NEO2. Definitely worth checking out!
The accessory line itself was playful and beautiful, there were smaller daintier pieces although I have to say I preferred the statement items. Necklaces and bracelets were covered in beads, studs, balls and fringing all at the same time, a look that you think would be all too chaotic but actually was very chic indeed.

I didn't manage to take a nice photo of Giles myself, I was tempted to ask him until I saw a couple of girls bother to him to the point where I felt sorry for the poor man and decided against it and just had a nice chat instead. Giles was a true host and circled the room talking to everyone, we also got chatting with the DJ Nathan Wilkins, a good friend of Giles whom funnily enough met through dating Katie Grand back in the 90's, they've been best friends ever since! It was hilarious that both Nathan and Giles had pocketed one of the little gold necklaces from the party, I wish we'd had the sense! They were both like school boys rather than fashion elite, it was so refreshing! After the Accessory party launch was over we were invited to drink more cocktails outside Somerset house, with Giles and a small circle of his friends.
Arghhh what an amazing night!
