Giles Deacon to launch nail polish line with New Look
Thursday 21 July 2011
The British designer has told the UK edition of
Grazia magazine that he is working on a collection of lacquers with the clothes retailer.
Letting the news slip in an interview this week, Deacon showed the magazine's editors first drafts for nail wraps in leopard prints as well as different nail colors that will all go on sale at New Look under the name of Gold by Giles.
"I really like the lilac color, and then also there's this Germolene pink that I always love, and [some] deep burgundy colors and a gold," he said. "You're getting a good cross-section - not too classic, but quite fashion, and definitely things you're going to get noticed with..."
Nail art is having a moment this year with Sephora having just released tutorials with Sophy Robson, special effects for the nails - be it crackle polishes, Minx nails, or Shellac manicures - more popular than ever, and retailers like Topshop launching their own collections and in-store nail bars.
