From the press notes:
The silhouette is built from the curves of a woman. Sculpted sweetheart necklines. Moulded sleeves. Tailored construction. Fitted feminine waists. Perforated crocodile technique fuses velvet on neoprene. Fabrics explore texture from jacquard butterfly wings to abstract powder moon print velvets.
Smoked shades of grey, pale blue, Bordeaux, pink, mustard, navy, cream, cocoa and caramel combine on crocodile bonded velvets, honeycomb neoprene, fur and felts and crystal punctuated seams.
Galliano Fall Winter explores fluidity of line with architectural precision.
Double-face jersey, luxurious lamé, jacquard knit, micro mesh contrast with light lurex waffle, double silk georgette and silk back crêpe. Eveningwear features pleated pane velvet and crystal beaded neoprene. Hybrid ankle boots of lizard and antelope fur balance on tri-galvanized heels while textured chunky knit hats are embroidered with feathers and drop crystals.
Sculpted silhouettes and detailing, modern techniques and fabrics fuse with tailored construction to form the Galliano Fall/Winter woman.
