John Galliano

Without fail, watching a John Galliano show feels more like a fantasy adventure than fashion news. Fall was no different. Inspired by “nomads on a mountainous terrain,” said the show notes, Galliano’s exploration of Eastern Europe and the Middle East produced enormous embroidered coats, furry adornments and more signature bias-cut dresses, plus the usual piling on of clothes and jewels. Models in massive floppy hats and woolly dreadlocks were doused with glitter as they walked down the runway in brutally beautifully outfits, while a few blousons even hinted at a more streetwise direction. Indeed, with his men’s line, the designer has proved he can dress a modern urbanite without surrendering his romantic reveries. Is this the future for the Galliano girl?
