The limited edition ‘Lipgloss’ sofa graced the catwalk, as the iconic British designer told fans of his collaboration with British sofa manufacturer and retailer DFS. Giles has used a monochrome colour scheme with flashes of bright orange lips. The modern box shaped statement sofa is synonymous with the designer’s renowned catwalk pieces. Speaking at London Fashion Week, Giles explained, “Naturally as a fashion designer, I wanted to draw on my design insight. I call my creation sophistipop, mixing clean lines with a daring print to create a standout feature piece.There is one dress in particular that I designed for my SS13 collection that inspired me to create the final design.” Giles’ ‘Lipgloss’ piece is perfect for anyone looking for a feature piece or to simply add some designer style to their home at a high street price. From mid-September, the sofa and footstool will be available to buy online at DFS.co.uk. Handmade in the UK, each sofa will come with a numbered certificate of authenticity personally signed by Giles Deacon.
