Galliano Jacket, Spring 2010

John Galliano's Spring 2010 Runway show was, as usual, out of control. Who would think to have a laserlit runway... with these gently falling orbs which create little poofs of smoke when they hit the floor?-- and more importantly, who else would be able to pull this off??

This one look struck me. The jacket is incredible... it's all about the contrasts. An innocent and girly shade of baby blue is covered with black lace. The lace itself is delicate and features a whimsical pattern, but is somehow extremely fierce and serious. The angular cut of the jacket and the strong shoulders says fierce, but the blue and lace details are distinctly feminine.

This, to me, is Galliano's true woman. Girly. Fearless. Strong.
