When I saw this picture of backstage at the John Galliano Spring/Summer 2011 show from the Jak and Jil blog, I knew that no matter how long it had been since the actual show, I had to post. Had I already admitted to myself, the love for the show?? Yes! Had I professed it on Twitter… I’m almost positive, but I had to express it to the masses in extended for. So with the assistance of the first image from Jak and Jil, the next three from Sonny Photos, and the smaller ones from Style.com, let’s delve into this show and the greatness that it brought.

So I saw the collection the first time and truly I said oh Galliano you devil. I love it, but I just kept going. I didn’t post about it. And then when the Dior Couture show came and Mr. Galliano came out for his finale walk I kind of went insane. I LOVED it! Can I put my finger on particularly why? Maybe it was because within a matter of weeks we went from seeing it in a collection, in the conceptual mode to actually being worn in a more natural way. To tell the truth I wanted to rip the veiled boater off of Mr. Galliano’s head. I was ready to wear it to lunch. Actually I think that’s exactly the reason I loved it.

The collection featured belted jackets and drop crotch pants. Whereas skinny legged pants were the style in seasons passed, it’s time to…. “let the boys breathe” if you will. And why not do it in the luxurious and glamourous pieces from the John Galliano collection. There’s always something about a Galliano collection that strikes me as glamorous! Well not just a Galliano collection, but a Galliano production. Maybe it’s the glitter tans and drawn on abs that inject a side of sex with the glamour, but whatever it is, that same aura is in this collection as well.

Whether it’s a lush, luxurious haute couture women’s collection, or a a luxurious yet comfortable, and still relevant men’s collection John Galliano has an eye and hand for design… but who am I telling? His productions are astounding, his work for this collection is virtually impeccable… ugh… he must be a cousin right?
