The desire to create a cup of fresh ideas put as striking and hot patterns further introduced as a line eventually got Bill Gaytten to create this stunning John Galliano spring/summer 2014 collection, inspired by technical innovations and freshly put designs. “It was about launching something new, so we did a lot of research,” said Gaytten backstage. Well, we can consider the ideas and goals successfully accomplished if not more. Leaving aside the factor of wearablity, since the garments are first and foremost intended to amaze rather than to become part of one’s wardrobe, we can say that every single piece manages to play its part very nicely, creating an energizing and driving effect.
The experimental innovations reach to the widest borders of shapes and colors. The last-named are chosen according to the principle of being light and sunny, interpreted via sunny yellow, bright orange, shiny pink and slightly counterbalanced with grey, black and white tones. The silhouettes vary from jacket-top-pants combos to stylish jumpsuits and dresses of nearly all lengths, from mini to floor touching.
The wide belts fastening the supercute pieces were the minor key details of the John Galliano spring/summer 2014 collection. The floral appliqués attached to this or that apparel, seemed to describe the whole line via the language of fashion. The oversized shoulders found on some jackets seem to be very popular for the upcoming season as well. Geometric black laser cuts worn over the background of white secure the place of classic black and white in the line. The cool caps and matching, though super-high heels are there to make the image complete.
Finally, it’s the ultra-beautiful rose patterns that form the most breathtaking part of the John Galliano spring/summer 2014 collection, represented by floor length dresses, further developing this pattern with a changed color palette, coming as beryl and black-grey plays, all of them having characteristic silk fabrics on.
Stunning, fascinating, awe-inspiring, and simply beautiful. This is what the John Galliano spring/summer 2014 collection is made of.
