John Galliano Wore A Sari With A Jacket

Media is abuzz with news of John Galliano’s return to fashion. Womenswear Daily (WWD) reported  that Oscar de la Renta has invited the disgraced designer to “spend some time with him in his studio over the next three weeks to the run-up of to the New York Fashion Week.”  It is believed that Anna Wintour had a hand in brokering this highly unorthodox “in residence” agreement. However Oscar made it clear this was in no way a succession plan. “Am I retiring? Is John going to replace me?” de la Renta posed, unsolicited. “Certainly not. I hope to be around for a long time.”

However what grabbed my eyes was the attire Galliano posed in. He has draped a cotton sari with ornate border over his boxers and paired it with a shirt and a jacket. Not clear what he has done with the palla. Seems like he has wrapped it around the sling of his satchel bag. And yes, don’t miss out on the anklet on his right foot!

    I hope you do know that this picture isn’t really from their get together recently. In fact a really really old picture back when Galliano was still very much at Dior.

    ha ha ha nothing new for a designer–even in india lots of these society butterfly gay and queen designers want to dress up like a women in public but are scared about the backlash they will get from the media !

    He is not “dressed like a woman.” He’s dressed like himself. Society stopped sex typing garments with the object of preventing women from having choices. Past time to stop sex typing to restrict men. Unless morons like jas can demonstrate that either sex is born in a skirt or trouser, he should get on a bottlecap and drift out to sea, with the Union Army general who scolded Mary Walker to tears for wearing pants in 1868. Pants are an invention for horseback riding. Is that how jas gets about today? Policemen in Samoa and Fiji wear skirts, Greek soldiers wear skirts, Dervishes in a dozen or more Arabic states wear skirts, and “pants” are named for a mid 16th century Italian clown.
