THE foam claw invite, the roars and the chirps of exotic animals to greet us as we took our seats and that green hot light you find in the reptile enclosure at the zoo: welcome to the wild, Giles style. Opening with Edie Campbell in pink and navy stripes, we were fooled into thinking this was in fact perhaps going to be something preppy instead – but all that really signaled was that this was a lesson in swotting up on our animal nous. With pink as the default colour, out came dresses with fluffy sequin snakes enlacing waists; molten metallic dresses festooned with exotic leaves; T-shirts and tunics with claws and paws of every colour; eye-of-the-tiger prints on ballgowns; feathers trailing out from their illustrations on minidresses; tasselled creepers to anchor each look. While Erdem had presented us with his pretty jungle earlier in the day, Giles was all about the disco jungle – a fun and dangerous proposition.
