Galliano Rules
Don`t forget! It is impossible forget the early
Galliano years in Paris.
Dreaming and cutting on the floor...

He always gave us the best show of the seasons.
He makes cool mixed images fully of passion and romance
and gave us the most exquisite
and crazy moments of our fashionista-lives…

Isn´ t John delicious?
He is spectacular since he started until now.
His powerful hands
knows knocks your brain!

These pictures are from
www.firstview.com







... from Galliano own label. - Of course dear

I know alot of you are saying you don't like his new stuff as much....but I don't feel like his losing something...he's just moving the collections in a different direction I guess, either way I love everything he does!! He's so amazing as a person too !!

That dress on Shalom on the last page, and that entire collection, was so stunning. There was this one look on Stella Tennant, a grey tweed ensemble of a jacket and long, fitted skirt. The jacket was incredible, it has this massive collar that kind of framed the head and neck and top of the decollete and covered the shoulders, and then this long slim silhouette from there down all topped off with a huge coil collar similar to the one worn by the Padaung tribe (giraffe women).

Firstview used to have the collection posted, but that one isn't a funtioning link anymore. I wish I could find a picture of it, it's an extraordinary look.

Some other looks from that collection...

So true, Spike. That grey jacket on Stella is just a masterpiece. Here are the FirstView pics: models striking impeccable poses in impeccable outfits.

that collection was indeed so extraordinary, i saw an interview in wich john explained it was inspired by mata hari and gustave klimt, after researching his work i realised that his summer 2004 haute couture collection also had some gustave klimt influences, all of those animations and ilustrations he used to get inspiration from, well i don´t have a pěcture of stella wearing that ensemble, but that outfit now belongs to Kioto´s institue of indumentary, i have a book about fashion history by Taschen, and a picture of it appears on it, here it is:

^ Yes, that dress on Shalom is very Mata Hari, he also talked about the jewelry being very important to the collection (in another interview I read) because he wanted to create an "aristocratic profile"

And indeed the jewelry was gorgeous, lots of Maharajah looking earrings and necklaces.

she did that dress no justice, imo. You'd need to be very slender to look good in that dress, it has such a 30's vibe to it that any ample curves kind of ruin the line.
