My third show to attend at the Paris Fashion Week 2011 end of January was for John Galliano Homme, which took place at the Ecole de Medicine. I had a first row seat and I enjoyed every bit of the show. Or should I say of the theatrical act I saw? It was insane. The music, the decoration, the model’s presentations.. all of it was simply great!
Galliano’s collection was inspired by the Russian ballerinus Rudolf Nureyev who was a Tartar where the clothes reflected the Barbaric lifestyle. With a Russian pianist playing live, the models showcased big coats, military jackets as well as tightly tailored pantsuits. The makeup and setting reflected how Galliano saw Rudie in his eyes.
I constantly bumped into River Viiper, who’s real fun and nice and Joan Pedrola, quite serious. Both are very young.
Here are some photos from my experience
Below is a glimpse on what the collection looked like.
Then there was this extremely VIP room for very selected people and press to enter it and meet the designer, John Galliano. I was very surprised with how thin he is in real life. Check out his hat
