Galliano SS13 // Volume

In 2007 ,I first saw  Galliano's fall collection on FashionTv. I was still beginning to digest the tidbits of fashion during that time.( Agyness Deyn was the main reason why I was hooked with runway shows).  It was one of his most theatrical show. From the billowing dresses that invokes hyper romance to the extravagance of the stage make up, everything was honestly overwhelming. Right then and there, I exclaimed that Galliano is the epitomy of what high fashion is. The kind of fashion that outsiders think of when the word fashion is uttered.

Bill Gayten for the House of Galliano continued this fluid-edge drama in a minimal way. Yes , minimal as compared to the ostentatious Galliano that we used to enjoy seasons ago. But I like it. The theatrics were seeded in the way the clothes were draped and gathered. There was hyper-volume in a Yohji Yamamoto kind of way with a tenuous amount of Jil Sander's  romanticism .As for the pieces ,  the scaling might have been 4x the normal. My hear skipped at the sight of the balloon trousers and the open wide-cuffed shorts. Again, like the others, Gayten referenced the Japanese and  Asian architecture for this collection. The shoes were my favorite. Pointed mules with blade wedges!!! Those  indented blade-like wedges were actually my favorite when I design shoes. I think most of the designers' shoes this season are so  strong.
