My Hallowe'en at No. 23

Last Thursday I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Matches' beautiful home at No. 23 Welbeck Street, for the preview of their collaboration with Giles Deacon, (on Hallowe'en no less!). The rooms within No. 23 were transformed to create the perfect Hallowe'en scene, from the decorations to the food to the waiters it was a setting so appropriate for the Giles x Matches collection (check out the dolls in the bird cage for one).
Giles has designed a capsule collection of dresses, accessories and homeware; including linear T-shirt dresses, sundresses, chinaware and notebooks, all of which are hand-drawn illustrations based on a series of dolls created by the designer. 
My favourite pieces had to be the iPad case and the dresses; love the digital print and the colours!

The Giles x Matches collection is available from the 13th November at Matches Online. Until then, keep checking out the amazing designer pieces dropping online each day! (Warning, add to basket syndrome may occur.)
