Not to be upstaged by the giant orange lilies in the backdrop, John Galliano vogued for the cameras like a 1920s Saint-Tropez dandy-in-drag following yesterday’s floral-gasmic Dior couture show. Shod in espadrilles and sporting what could pass for cuffed pinstriped pajama pants, the designer also rocked a boater hat and tulle veil, likely created by longtime collaborator Stephen Jones.
Come October, however, Galliano may be donning a chapeau from his own collection—never mind that it’s women’s. The new line, which also includes scarves, will reportedly take its inspiration from runway looks created by Jones. Though the milliner is not directly involved with its design, he was responsible for yesterday’s out-of-this-world plastic-wrapped couture headgear.
