Paris Menswear Fashion Week--Galliano's Flight of Dandy Fantasy
As is tradition, Menswear Designers show their collections to the world in Milan and Paris right before Haute Couture Fashion Week. And of course, this season was no exception. One of the highlights I wanted to show you was John Galliano's collection. It was a decadent flight into his vision for what men should be wearing come next Fall/Winter: Imagine the mythical "Pan"--Half-man half-goat then throw in some Colonial Dandies in 18th-century decadence (and 21st-century micro-mini underwear), add a dash of "Slumdog Millionaire"/Bollywood music and throw in 20,000 candles and an acre of crystal shards and glitter....and well, you've got yourself a very entertaining vision only Galliano's mind could conjure up. And some actually very wearable shearlings, vests and fierce jackets (oh, I swear I wasn't going to say FIERCE!) Click BELOW for John Galliano Fall 09/10 for Men runway videos

Nick, I just have to ask --

I love to see designs like these. They are creative and come from such imagination and passion. But do people actually wear designs like these? Where would a man truly wear a suit with a big fluff of material on their shoulder?

I don't ask disrespectfully, it's just that I don't understand this part of fashion. Is it simply to showcase what a designer can create, thus showing his or her potential? Or are there people in the world who do buy and wear these designs out in the 'real' world?

I do think Galliani's designs were beautiful, inspired and enticing.I particularily love the first photo you posted. That's entirely sexy. And photo 2? Too much to say, so we'll just leave it right there. :-)
