The comprehensive John Galliano update: From Charlie Rose to Vanity Fair, we chart the course of his impending comeback
John Galliano is back on the map after a two-year hiatus. The Gibraltar-born British fashion designer, who not so long ago held the reins to one of the biggest fashion houses in the industry, has been the subject of much dispute since his 2011 firing from Dior. Galliano spottings over the past couple of years have been scarce, leaving questions about a possible comeback unanswered. With a new Vanity Fair interview on the stands and a televised one just released online, Galliano seems to be straying from the low profile he’s been keeping contributing to suspicions of a rebound on the horizon. From internships at his designer pal’s atelier to facing blackout drinking, were taking a look at recent developments in John Galliano’s slow but sure return.
Smurfashion! Illustrator Alexsandro Palombo transforms Karl, Anna and Marc into our favourite cartoon forest dwellers
When photos surfaced of Karl Lagerfeld sporting the now famous “Karl Who” tote by French label Naco Paris, we knew the fashion parody trend was one that was here to stay. It wasn’t long before fashion’s fresh young things were spotted lingering outside NYFW shows in “Ballinciaga” tees by American streetwear label Conflict of Interest and “Homiés” toques by Reason Clothing.
There’s something refreshing about the fashion parody craze, whose goal is to make light of society’s obsession with must-have fashion items and their designers. Italian artist Alexsandro Palombo intends to put his own clever twist on fashion’s most wanted. What’s the big idea? Smurfs, of course! That’s right, Palombo, who specializes in design and fashion illustration, has created a Smurf for everyone from Donatella Versace to Grace Coddington. The fun doesn’t stop there, Palombo’s designs include a Smurfashion Village where one may stumble upon a Smurf version of Marc Jacobs standing in front of his Louis Vuitton monogram printed Smurf hut, or John Galliano pouting in front of a locked up Smurf Maison Dior.
The fashionistas-gone-blue remind us of Barneys’ holiday collaboration with Disney, which featured a slew of fashion VIPs in cartoon version. Palombo has shown his designer spoofing talents in the past with a Fashion Simpsons series depicting a lovable yellow version of the industry’s most powerful individuals. Palombo’s chic Smurf series was sketched up to celebrate the ‘50s Belgian TV sensation, The Smurfs. We think the super stylish Smurf-pack has never looked so good! All artwork is available for download on Palombo’s blog.
Fall 2013 is on the agenda, but here at Paris Fashion Week, spring is in the air. It’s been deliciously sunny over the past few days with fashion warriors shedding winter for bright spring outfits. If Carine Roitfeld can do head-to-toe cream and caramel, bare legs and open-toe shoes (as seen at Hôtel de Crillon), then the rest of us can too. Black, however, is still a dominant hue on the catwalk and the sidewalk, but every now and again a flash of brightness taps you on the shoulder and says, “regarde-moi.”
Here are Paris Fashion Week’s top four colour moments for Fall 2013.
