Well, December is a traditional time of year to invest in socks for your loved ones, and by freakish but brilliant serendipity, Giles has designed a gorgeous range of toe-warming pieces for lovely Happy Socks! Hurrah! To celebrate the fact, we got together via email and asked Giles to tell us all about his favourite footwear foibles . . .
Grazia Daily: Do the socks you wear reveal things about your personality?
Giles Deacon: Socks for me cheer me up so a nice colour or pattern works a treat
GD: Do you wear specific pairs for cycling, and if yes, do you pull them up proudly over your trousers?
GD: I will cycle in any sock and yes, pull them up over my slacks - the more novel the better
GD: Sometimes people complain that buying socks as presents for people is a bit unoriginal . . . what would you say to them?
GD: So not unoriginal if you go for a very special pair - they have socks in places ranging from New Look to Hermes
GD: Do you have a favourite sock pun? I will use it for the headline of the piece. . (.e.g The joy of socks, Sock it to me, I wanna socks you up . . . )
GD: The joy of socks always makes me laugh
GD: What are the nicest socks for girls to wear? Do you like it when girls wear high heels with socks?
GD: Ankle socks with high heel sandals and knee high with platforms
GD: Do you have a solution to when you’ve done your washing and there aren’t any matching pairs to be found?
GD: Yes, go and buy some new ones!
Thank you so, so very much! happysocks.com
