It's kind of like when Hagar replaced David Lee Roth in Van Halen. You want to love it cause it's your favorite band but... it's just not the same. Not happening.

There were some nice pieces though. IMO.

I am really saddened by this collection. Not a single Galliano feel was left. The drama, the artistry, the colors, the vibrance, the mood and the excitement you feel picture after picture is now gone. It`s a decent collection but it doesn`t live up to the name. John established this brand to be a Ready-to-wear couture now all is left like it was a brand for Resort or whatever.

But it does....if LVHM positively hate Galliano. Think about it....they have fired him and are now holding his name hostage besmirching it, no doubt, as they feel that he has besmirched them. This horrible, horrible collection stands as a testament to that.

It's petty. But keeping Galliano and soiling it to the point of no return does make sense from that point of view.

This kinda looks like a deadbeat and trampy version of a Valentino collection! With all due respect to Mr. Glaytten, his efforts are not at all close to what Galliano was (and still is!) In all honesty, this looks like he cut out previous Galliano dresses from magazines and jsut pasted them on the models, result: A campy and wannabe-like collection! It is beautiful in it's own way, but when you see or at least remember the creativity that once abound this great fashion house (as well as another - Dior), you can't help but cry!

About 2 or 3 of the gowns are ok but the rest of this is just disgusting. There is nothing new here he is just recylcing. And if your going to do that at least be smart enough to recylce for past Galliano collections and not ones from Dior! There is way to much of a Dior influence in this collection just like the cruise collection they did a while back. You would think that someone who worked so closely with John would know how to design for this brand But I guess not...
