John Galliano is still alive and this is his namesake label, i think that's the point everyone is trying to get-at.

For me, after two really incredible seasons (Fall/Winter 2011 and Spring/Summer 2011), both of which received a lot of praise, my curiosity is so peaked as to what John himself would have done as a follow up. Of course the world will never know, but I really don't think people are being "over dramatic." It's a creative let down to see something like this. At least w/ Burton @ McQueen the "McQueen DNA" is still there, just altered. Sadly, this just doesn't have the Galliano DNA...just because we have sheer dresses and cute ruffles and hats doesn't make it a Galliano collection. I think people would be just as harsh, if not more, if John designed this, but who is to say? Some of the dresses towards the end remind me so much S/S 2004 (Baby Doll Collection) and then I see a little bit of SS '11., etc., but they feel like knockoffs, imitations so to speak, and not the real thing...
Does Giuseppe Zanotti do the shoes for Galliano? B/c. those chunky heels with the crystals look like carbon copies of the crystal chunk heel by Zanotti!

The daywear is not Galliano at all.
The eveningwear is closer to Galliano.

It's an average collection.

I'm very disappointed in the makeup and hair. This is so basic.
The last few dresses do seem to be Galliano-ish but the rest is just meh.
What a shame.

What a strange collection. It starts off all very staid and straight laced and then there is a selection of what could only be called sheer, fancy night gowns.
It doesn't make a lot of sense to me and it isn't very original, and not much good either.

I cannot fathom how someone, how a whole team of someones I presume, who worked so closely with Galliano for any significant length of time could come out of it having absorbed so little of his genius and skill. The eye for detail, for fit, for shape, for color...it's all so severely lacking.

Why don't they just finnish this off? His brand was in the last years, even with Galliano in charge totally irrelevant.

I simply do not get this, you fire a designer and rightly so, because he created a disgusting reputation, but at the same time the company decides to continue with a brand that bears the exact name of that same designer, presumedly because they think they will profit from the connection. Hypocrite or what?
