Couture king Giles Deacon’s experience with luxury Italian accessory masters at Bottega Veneta is reflected in the new "must have" car accessory he has designed to mark the launch of the new Vauxhall Tigra this summer.
Giles is gearing up for his second show in September’s London Fashion Week where he’ll showcase his spring/summer 2005 collection. But fans of his work won’t have to wait that long to own these limited edition hand crafted leather dice which are set to adorn the rear-view mirrors of the most stylish cars in town.
The new Tigra – Vauxhall’s smart two seater coupé roadster – will be previewed at Giles’s show as the company supports him for the second time. Giles is also a member of Vauxhall’s VX Collective style council and will be unveiling other luxury car accessories for new Tigra in the run up to his show.
Said Giles: "The Tigra’s retractable hard top means the interior of the car has to look as good as the outside. I wanted to bring a retro favourite bang up to date and give people the chance to personalise their cars in a fun but very stylish way."
The Giles Deacon dice are available to buy for £19.99 (plus £1 for postage and packaging). To place an order call 020 7861 2465 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.Published 11 August 2004
