“This collection is about adding filters, but as much about removing them and sharing as about connecting with a community, becoming part of a union and relating through mutual emotions rooted in memories,” Galliano said in one of his comments. This collection indeed was a reference to his past and to present day cultural protest.
The pieces in Galliano’s Spring 2017 Couture collection varied between deconstructed ‘unfinished’ looks, to sleek and elegant silk numbers. There was definitely an element of couture theatre, with over sized hats and headpieces, a chiffon masterpiece and a bulbous, tent like number to close the show in style.
An interesting and elegant collection from John Galliano, flickering between reality and fantasy and old and contemporary.
