Paris Fashion Week: John Galliano
For me, he epitomises everything fashion should be- bold, bright, exciting, fun and fresh. His spring ’11 collection was rooted in the artistic eccentricity of the 1920’s with a theatrical-inspired runway show.
The works of artists such as Henri Matisse, Jean Cocteau and Fernand Léger influenced his catwalk, alongside the pantomime of 1920’s theatre with exaggerated wigs, veiled bonnets in neon pink or orange chiffon, over-sized hats and hand-painted parasols.
Skirts were layered in contrasting palettes of pink and orange or red and pink – teamed with belted, fitted jackets. The eclectic show climaxed with a series of bejewelled white chiffon dresses topped with veiled hat headresses.
