John Galliano Spring 2018: Paris Fashion Week

John Galliano Spring 2018: Paris Fashion Week

Hip-to-be-square was the theme of creative director Bill Gaytten‘s latest collection for John Galliano. The Spring/Summer collection presented a beautiful embrace of the bad girl, drawing inspiration from John Waters’s cult romance musical Cry Baby

Mandarin collars on ornate jackets reminded us a bit of last season’s Adam Ant-fueled collection, but the spring colors were brighter and more effervescent, while still daringly mixing high and low, masculine and feminine.

the looks daringly mixed high and low, masculine and feminine

Soft satin fabrics alternated with strong masculine suits, giving a strong contrast between hard and soft, but the collection also pulled out the best of nightgowns and partywear.

In line with other pajamas-as-eveningwear we saw on this season’s runways, some looks could work just as easily in the ballroom as the bedroom. Light crepe was wrapped around the bodies of models to build a fairytale narrative.

Just as we got used to silky negligees and lightweight gowns, Gaytten surprised with rough suits over buttoned-up blouses. Light-tucked tuxedos and both pink and black suits reminded us of the Met Gala, where everybody wants to be.

But what’s a gala without the perfect princess dress? Whether you prefer pretty pink or glittering gowns, Gaytten’s bad-girl spring fling seemed to have something for all tastes.
