PARIS, Oct 1, 2012/ — Sculpted volumes, graphic print and pure colour explore the modernity of dressing. Combinations of drape and fold, with contrasts of silhouette, place the focus on the sophisticated craftsmanship, cut and construction that defines the House of Galliano.
Lightness plays with volume as garconne and Geisha notes evoke a new silhouette in clean architectural lines. Draped and fitted jackets are worn with voluminous trousers and statement over-sized shorts.
Stephen Jones Mille-feuille and Bird’s nest creations evoke an Edwardian elegance as they also define the new modernity of Galliano.
Purity of form with over-sized layering contrasts the light versus obi-binding. Cut-away shapes, clean round-necklines and varying asymmetric hems in trench cottons, technical taffeta, crepe, cotton poplin punctuate this contemporary collection.
The modern spirit of a woman is refined and romantic in a restrained palette of stone, coral, navy, white, black and pale pink. With the graphic ‘Flying Man’ print and ‘Traffic’ jacquard sculpted shapes are demure yet urban, creating a graphic new femininity for Spring Summer 2013.
