Galliano garb




























Couture week is ON. Dior versus Valentino. Classicism versus Modernism. You know the drill. John Galliano is celebrating a decade as being the genius behind the latest era in design at Dior which would normally warrant a triumphant mini-retrospective but instead the collection (as seen in these lovely images from Style.com) appeared to be pulling inspiration from all over the place - literalizing the work of painters like Degas and Picasso and fashioning them into garments.



This won't be his most memorable collection for me, but lassoing in the old supermodels such as Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell, Giselle Bundchen and Shalom Harlowe added grandeur and a sense of Gallaino's influence on the fashion world over the years.

it was all abit same old same old... quite missmatched, but I loved it. I especially loved the gown that Shalom Harlow wore down the runway

Allure said...

I don't really like the collection. I find it too dramatic. Well it's Galliano...

Well FM, Galliano right now is probably sprawled on a deck chair somewhere sipping a glass of Riesling quoting Emerson to himself...a man "is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best...", but he just looks like an old imitator to me, 10, 50, 100 years too late.
