I agreed about similarity of comme des carcon and Yoji. This is not looked good at all.

That's my initial reaction! Guess is a good thing.

lol how is it a good thing when it looks nothing like John Galliano?

It looks like even the make-up team got tired of trying anything innovative because Bill G is just THAT uninspiring as a designer.

At first i was like 'oh, what is this, yamamoto?' but most of the looks are very reminescent, even if toned down, of what john was doing in the early 00s. I think i don't hate this collection, it's better than most of gaytten's outings, thats for sure

this is really, really, good. i mean you wouldn't expect this from the house of galliano/ it adds to the identity crisis whirlwind it's been going through for the past year and a half or so; but there's such a pureness to each of the looks. he decided to allocate time to construction rather than gimmicks and the streamline pieces speak for themselves.

It could be good if it was another brand, because it really is a good collection, but knowing that it's designed for the Galliano brand, it doesn't work. I repeat, to me, it's a great collection, but it doesn't fit this brand.

I actually think this is excellent.

I think this is what the house needed at this point. To pretend to be Galliano is futile and the collections that have followed since his departure have always ended up looking like a try hard parade of desperate mimicry.

This is perfect. I love it. The draping and volume is interesting, fresh - kind of reminds me of the volumes from his legendary Spring/Summer 2003 show. The colors are beautiful and the styling is absolutely magnificent. I love how casual the hair and make up is paired with these sort of modern take on 17th century volumes.

Very impressed.

This is the best thing I've seen Gaytten do, if he can drape like this why was the drape so crap at Dior when he designed? There are still horrifically unflattering pieces.. but in honesty, Galliano did create some monstrosities sometimes, in fact I don't know if he'd approve of such a lack of flamboyant fabulousness at his namesake brand.
This collection is too stiff in my opinion.. I miss Galliano's liquid satin bias-cut .. and dare I say it, I even miss the transvestite makeup.
