SHOPPING - John Galliano Tribute
Hello everyone ! I know it's a little bit late, but let's do a quick recap of this tribute season - although this article will be mostly about me bragging about things. So, SD released a nice treat to begin this season : a true vintage John Galliano tribute. If you read this blog, you might know that I started to get interested in fashion with Balmain in 2006 ; but if I have to show you the first silhouette that actually hooked me, it would be this one from a Galliano runway in 2009 :
I can't really tell you why, but a lot of things moved me on this outfit : I loved the texture, the sheerness of the fabric, that green color - I hate it today tho - and that funny hat.. Or maybe it was their general oddness : all those Galliano models wore a non-streetstyle makeup that gave them an instant vintage look - even "historical" look should be more accurate to talk about this. They could have looked like they are in disguise, but I think that it's giving them a delicate vibe.
So, SD provided us some vintage before-scandal Galliano. I really liked this collection, although this is not what I actually love about Galliano : I needed more sheerness, more mermaid-shaped dresses or schoolgirl-tailored outfits and weird sienna-mustard colors.
And if I may add a little bit more, this tribute made me hungry for more. This is - thanks to Stardoll's Most Wanted blog - some post-scandal Galliano outfits. Although this designer went from up and downs, I feel that his genius is still here.. and it is actually growing with today's trends : the mini dress, the V necks and the oversized short-coats...
And here are the outfits I've made with those items. I feel like my inspiration took the "drama" path in this batch, and my outfits are a little bit more extreme. I really love how those kind of designers challenge my creativity !
1. Almost casual - Galliano dress.
2. Yes I'm going to a party, no you are not invited - Galliano
dress skirt + boots, Saint Laurent blazer.
3. I used to be a financial analyst, but that was before - Galliano trousers, Vivienne Westwood shirt, Lanvin purse.
4. The bigger : the better - Galliano coat, Gucci trousers, Versus shoes.
That's it !
