John Galliano Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2014 Paris

Today's John Galliano show, by Bill Gaytten, was all bubble-pop electric. The runway kicked off with a mixed soundtrack, composed of both “Sunshine” by M.I.A and Rye Rye, and Azealia Banks' infamous “212” track.

Thus, the tone was set: the collection was inspired by cool girls on the block, respected for their fierce attitude and spicy fashion. In fact, once you google these indie pop stars, you'll realize that they would have perfectly fit into Gaytten's empowering, eye-popping outfits.

“Sunshine” was really a friend of this spring 2014 Galliano woman: think edged and sporty mini-dresses in neon fuchsia, mint, and lemon hues that were cinched at the waist by a chunky metallic belt, and sported with quirky Velcro-bow wedges, for the footwear, and colorful headpieces, which made a nod to, both, baseball caps and cycling helmets.

Other than a true wardrobe for hipsters, Gaytten proposed an interesting take on 3D-structure and fabric texture. He fully sculpted his geometrically draped pieces with laser cutouts, that revealed squared and floral patterns, and further, punch printed boxy cropped tops, high-waist pants, folded skirts, jumpsuits, and stiff overcoats, with similar motives.

That said, the designer forgot to translate the cockiness of his musical muses into his clothes. The collection was very clean and framed, thus, lacking in Galliano-esque signature drama. But maybe it is not that bad after all – Gaytten has already refreshed the brands DNA. But, wouldn't it be just more appropriated to finally name the label “Bill Gaytten”?
