Inspired by the Chelsea Physics Garden, which was founded in 1673, Giles Deacon’s Fall/Winter 2015 show was a macabre exploration of Stuart period fashions.

Deacon continued to work ruffles, bows, and bishop sleeves into each exaggerated ensemble, and different black fabrics—patent leather, silk, velvet—gave each piece a new layer of gothic. Topped with vampy purple lipstick, models looked like characters from the most fashionable nightmare you have ever had.
