I had always thought that John Galliano was as mad as a box of frogs, but he pulled off the crazy Dior haute couture collections each time. Theatrical, but beautiful, nuts, but polished nuts…(going to get some interesting people land on this page from that last comment!).
So when I saw the first collection after his “disgraced departure” I was hoping that (like Sarah Burton for McQueen) someone who had been propping him up these last years could finally come to the fore…alas, I was very disappointed:
A bit whacky?! Yes. Cool whacky?! Definitely not!
And the balls and cubes on the heads? What?!
