John Galliano Fall 2016 RTW Show Channeled Strong Military Vibes

With just a few days left to bid adieu to another grand fashion week season that is definitely to have its say in the fashion history, the John Galliano fall/winter 2016-2017 collection is sneaking to us with all its transparency, purity and softness mixed with tomboyish vibes and a noble twist. The fact that all and sundry are hoping for the extravagant and scandalous John Galliano to be back at the helm of his eponymous brand, does in no way prevent us from extolling Bill Gaytten’s flair for fashion and his unique architectural (Gayten studied architecture) injections into the brand.

John Galliano Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

This is a unique eclectic period to mix and match anything you have at your disposal and when it comes to Bill Gaytten he seems to buck the trend in no way but strongly adhering to that surge and marrying eveningwear with sporty vibes. At first blush everything seemed to be bizarre and off-kilter, but then gradually we acquired a taste for Gaytten’s delicious offerings.

English nobleman three-piece suits or two-piece outfits at times styled with golden pocket watches somewhere on the chest or cinched around the waist as a belt and matched with cool sneakers looked somehow symphonic and on the same wavelength. But those ethereal see-through pieces matched with same style footwear threw us into equilibrium and in deep thoughts whether it would be worth following this craziness which kicked it with higher gear when a red-carpet-ready full-skirted strapless gown appeared in the middle of the show with rocky surface and paired with sporty sneakers.

White and black were the dominating colors in the John Galliano fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection with some ash grey, navy blue, olive green, blush pink and Byzantium purple in between. Diaphanous black and white lace or tulle pieces were beaming over and could easily pass off as lingerie pieces. Another unique combination we appreciated greatly was a frothy see-through black skirt topped with a navy blue blazer with frogging all over.

And then came those knitted soft sweaters in white and blue that were demonstrating elongated sleeves entirely covering the hands and swinging to and fro in an effortless manner. One of the all-white peasant dresses was evocative of Pride and Prejudice; another white stunner with sequined lattice embellishing the bodice and with sneakers in combination had some prankish and elfish twist to it, while a celestial powdery pink gown with a romantic bow on one shoulder was so delicate and fragile that a touch could cause it some damage.

Not only was the lace to spread intimacy around but also those lingerie-style silk dresses that were frosty, with some chaotic waves and second to none neckline designs. And if you also hanker for some vertiginous aroma to touch your nose, look to that black transparent dress with one shoulder going in bow style and with myriads of tiny blush pink flowers densely spread all over the board.
