For his Fall/Winter ’09 Collection, John Galliano drew inspiration from old England, most notably Sir Francis Dashwood and his Hellfire Club, an exclusive club for the British high society during the 16th Century. In his interview, Galliano also states that he was inspired by old paintings, books, and mythology, combining elements of streetwear, sportswear, and melding it into “The Galliano DNA,” somthing the designer says his discerning target audience seeks.
I’m loving Galliano’s collection. Aside from the old English feel, it gives me a Pirates of the Caribbean vibe as well. And ladies, did you peep the shoes?!? yes, heels are coming in higher than ever, but to incorporate such raw materials as plywood, Galliano is taking the shoe game to another plateau.
