Pirates of the Arabian i would prefer to call this one.. John Galliano's strong and tanned models strutted their stuff down the catwalk in intricately designed head-pieces and very interesting yet captivating views on a middle-eastern culture. I loved alot of things about the collection because of the ethnicity he is pulling inspiration from, i think the flowly, middle eastern and bo-ho look is very appealing and not necessarily timeless but on-going... You can always find something light, not form fitted and colored a beautiful hue to wear with just about anything.
I found some things in the first part of this collection to be very feminine. You may not see it under the jawlines, edgy whiskers, layers of muscle, and the cuts of some of the garments but a femininity transcends. Take the trench on the left for example, beautiful embroidery and a graduating length. I also found the shorts at the top left to be very very feminine to, they were ruffled at the ends which adds such a daisy look. The gray 4 pocket vest on the right is one of my favorite things i have seen in this collection.. I can't really chop it down or anything but i just plain and simply like it.
First off that jacket is amazing!! Look at it! Its amazing amazing amazing haha... They had somethin quite similar at Zara i passed up a while ago FML.. my loss there.. But i love this jacket dearly.
He had to.. i swear he had to.. He must off.. John Galliano got my letter to make a sequence vest !! I WISHHHHH haha but he must of read my MIND if anything because as you may know i am dying for a sequence anything.. most preferably a vest.. And there one is! From what i can see its a great shape and beautiful design.. FUTURE INVESTMENTSS haha
Can i start by saying how much i love this vest haha.. Yes im probably sure you get it by now but i am a sucker for vests even though i tend to rarely wear them.. ANYWAYS.. Once the collection comes to this more tailored, dressed up and lighter colored with tans, topes & etc side my heart has been captivated.. I love everything about these looks and look at those shoes!! They are probably one of the nicest shoes of that color and style ive seen in a while. I also love the pants especially on the look to the left.. They remind me of Alladin, just an Alladin that had a bit more money and knew where to shop haha.
Love the jacket + denim combo and especially with those shoes again its amazing! I need to find out more about these shoes.. I think i may just be as obsessed as i am with the Alexander Wang booties.
OK im really finding this unbearable i am utterly loving EVERYTHING about John Galliano right now .. Look at that denim jacket.. The detailing on the sleeves, the lapels and its double breasted! A favorite choice!.. man i need to start saving up.. Christmas presents arent going to be enough to cover all this haha
The way i feel about the denim jeans on model is pretty much the same way i feel about the denim jacket above.. And for me to like a more straight leg cut jean as oppose to a skinny is KIND OF a big deal.. just throwing that out there!!
Underwear & 10 Pack Abs Anyone ??
And then John Galliano transferes the happy and bright colors into the dark and devious side of the collection which i also manage to love. What i love alot about this part of the collection is that he uses darker colors & shades and then makes things pop with them like these jackets.. They are amazing! Look at the detail.. on the slevees and lapels.. And especially on the longer jacket look at the layers. The construction of it is amazing.
I love the details on the sleeves and pin-stripes on the blazers and suits.. Overall i love this collection from top to bottom, beginning to end.. John Galliano definitely made some favorites for me for 2010.
