Giles Deacon loves Mad Men, more specifically the superb Christina Hendricks, whose va-voomery was very much on his mind when he was designing his Resort collection. He hung a bustier off a bra strap (and paired it with silk cigarette pants) at one overt extreme, and, much more subtly, draped a jersey column over a half-corset in the name of emphasizing curves. His organza bubble skirts sort of served the same function, spotlighting everything above the waist.

If Deacon's clothes can occasionally seem a little studied, bordering on heavy, this season he joined the light brigade with skirts and dresses that either bounced or flowed. Put those silhouettes together with surface details like an explosive squiggle print, a surreal doll-face visual, or a jolt of vermilion, and you have yourself a look that just might drive men mad, Joan Holloway-style.
