Yeah, I do agree. If you look at it piece by piece there are some things there I would actually wear.

I just figured out what this makeup was reminding me of! The mommy dearest movie where joan crawford is in her white face mask screaming at her daughter and making her scrub the floor!!

I do like some of the pieces ... and I clap to Galliano cuz he's not boring ... I mean ... if you see a girl in the street wearing some of his latest pieces you effortlessly say "Its Dior" ... I mean ... at least this collection its wearable!

I don't think I'd love Galliano as much if he weren't over the top...

that said, however, his collections always feel like an exercise in his celebrity...that is, it's difficult to separate the man from the collection, more so with him than with many other designers (which can be either a good or a bad thing depending on how you look at it...but that is a whole complex artistic issue that I am too tired to go into right now )

but that's Galliano's appeal to me...his persona...

the short dresses are hot hot hot and could always be practicalized by wearing with pants...the dresses in general are just beautiful

I thought the makeup was breathtaking albeit not-wearable

i'm really dissapointed from Galliano, this opium den (as paulina put it) is ruinning his creativity, he should get over and pull his act together.

on the commercial side and since mass manufacturers and the mass market customers are just hyped to death by "lux brands" he's keeping his strong influence, which makes things even worst for Dior-inspired trashy copies everywhere yuckkkk

I loved the collection, I mean, the show was awesome, i saw the video at the site, and i couldnt shut my mouth! I mean, the lighting, the music, even the models....I agree with you all about Galliano loosing his mind, I loved his first collections from Dior, but I wonder now who wear this stuff..I mean, those bulky jackets that looks like parachutes!!!... i know that, if you separate some stuff, you can wear most of what he designs, but again, is like the Jlo versace dress...once u wear it, u cant wear it again, everyone will notice!...I wish that he could go back to his early years with Dior, and so something beautful as he used to..

One of the strongest messages of the business. Very recognizable maybe, but the more I see it the more I understand. And what does a house want more than understanding?

The first tops are pretty, and I do like the colors and prints... you know it's Galliano from a mile away.

Too true, este, at best - understanding.
But at least - curiosity, buzz!

Too true too, Tuesday .
Visibility up to two miles, recognition at least one.

It's a wild and fun collection .

I think the patterns and fabrics are incredible, but I'm not sure a mushroom is the ultimate model to emulate.

Great choice from the Spring Couture, mrrene. Those were the best colors,
I thought. Similar though muted a bit, this was my favorite look from that show.
