The apparel and accessories collection with a neo-grunge feel that Agyness Deyn has turned out for her inaugural collaboration with Dr. Martens (which she unveiled in London yesterday and goes on sale this August), reads like a list of thrift-store finds the model turned actress might have steadily accrued since her breakout years in the mid-2000s. Among them: velvet platform creepers, daisy-print tea dresses, reversible bomber jackets, jacquard knits, and a bold, thigh-grazing interpretation of the classic DM boot (the originals were Deyn’s footwear of choice throughout her high school days and, even more recently, several red-carpet appearances). “I looked at the sexy boyishness of Juliette Lewis and Winona Ryder,” she says of the early-nineties actresses who inspired her. “And Angela Chase [Claire Danes] from My So-Called Life—she had a nerdy, awkward quality which I like.”

AGYNESS DEYN has been chosen to star in a film adaptation of legendary Scottish novel Sunset Song, directed by celebrated British filmmaker Terence Davies.
The Vogue cover girl will star alongside War Horse star Peter Mullan in the film, adapted from the 1932 novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. Deyn, who received critical acclaim for her part in The Leisure Society in London’s West End earlier this year, will play the film’s female protagonist Chris Guthrie – the resilient heroine of the piece.
“When I read the script I fell completely in love with the character and the story, I’m so honoured and excited to be working with Terence, he’s such an incredible director,” Deyn said. “I can’t wait to get started and just hope that I can do Chris Guthrie justice!”
Set in the early 19th Century in a poverty-stricken rural community in the north-east of Scotland, Sunset Song charts the struggle of Deyn’s character Chris to hold her family – and its floundering farm – together amid personal pressures and the social and economic changes imposed by industrialisation and the looming Great War.
Filming is planned to begin later this year.

VOGUE cover girl Agyness Deyn is teaming up with Dr Martens to launch a new fashion collection. The range, which will launch globally this autumn, will feature clothing, accessories and footwear.
“The brand is a great fit for me, as it stands for strong character and being able to shape your own personal identity,” Deyn told WWD.
The model-turned-actress shares a long-standing relationship with the brand, having starred in its autumn/winter 2011-12 and spring/summer 2012 campaigns. She bought her first pair of Dr Martens when she was just 13-years-old.
This isn’t the first time Deyn has ventured into fashion design – she created her debut apparel offering for department store Barneys in March 2010. The British-born beauty can currently be seen on the London stage, in her theatre debut for new play The Leisure Society.

Written by the award-winning Montreal playwright François Archambault, The Leisure Society is a satirical play about a self-obsessed yuppie couple whose lives spiral out of control when a dinner party turns into a night of debauchery.
The Leisure Society also stars Ed Stoppard who returns to the stage having previously appeared in Upstairs Downstairs, Hamlet, Arcadia and The Glass Menagerie.
