Welcome the John Galliano Woman of today. For Bill Gaytten what began as an exploration of Art Deco motifs and materials quickly developed into something that pulsed with a visual vibrancy that resonates today.
Something weridly romantic about the Galliano collection, one look was needle-punched gold lamé and knit together for a tank top and paired it with coppery, cropped pleated pants. Metallic silver jacquards were everywhere, sturdy in miniskirts, achingly fragile in chiffon blouses. Fish were a recurrent motif, embroidered on a one-shouldered evening dress or a short, cape-draped shift.
