John Galliano F/W 2012 Collection

Even though Galliano took us back to Prohibition era America, from Tommy gun laden gangsters like Al Capone to hirsute sports stars like Joe DiMagio, this isn’t your grandfather’s collection. Double-breasted pin stripe suits, spear point shirts, graphic checks and tweed baggy trousers pop with flashes of metallic silver. Gold leather, printed baseball jerseys, aviator leathers and supped up football pants jump out with the brilliance of an old Leyendecker painting.
