John Galliono Menswear Spring 2011
John Galliano has once again created a fresh and creative collection. You would think that a flamboyant designer would get monotonous over time but each collection he does seems to be different then the last. The spring 2011 menswear collection reminds me of a psycho Charlie Chaplin. Like he had a murderer inside of him just waiting to come out. You have the "i just murdered someone" stage, then the jail stage, followed by the escape stage, then the "im going to reinvent myself so im not recognized" stage, the vacation stage, then the black tie event stage (if you go down the runway photos you will understand what im talking about). Yes, it sounds strange but thats honestly how i see this collection. Its odd, quirky, dark, and creative. Everything that i love about a menswear collection.
How do you feel about androgyny? I don't think it has anything to do with a man acting more feminine or a woman acting more masculine, it has to do with the outside look. You can wear makeup and still be the most masculine guy around.
