Creative Director John Galliano’s mesmerising collection examines the ritual of dressing as a physical expression of emotion



"The collection explored the idea of Paris by moonlight on the Seine, with exquisite muses coming to life in a beautiful tableau and in a painterly way. The highlight of the look was this modern take on porcelain glass skin, which we achieved by making the models’ faces as shiny and reflective as glass."




Experimenting with silhouette, texture, and innovative couture techniques, the collection takes us on a moody, moonlit walk along the Seine in Paris, where we meet a cast of exquisite muses presented in a beautiful tableau. “The makeup for the show plays with a modern take on porcelain glass skin,” says Pat. Brows are bleached, replaced by pencil-thin arches drawn on using neutral-toned shadows. Variations of a painterly eye appear in a stunning array of jewel tones, pastels or moody charcoals. Cream blush is applied to the centre of the cheeks for a doll-like flush. On the lips, subversive shades of blooded red and black are topped in clear gloss for a surreal pout. Finally, skin is coated in a hyper-shiny glaze, mimicking the smooth, reflective quality of glass and completing the models’ unbelievable metamorphosis.
