The invites for John Galliano’s fashion show were folded into Chinese take out boxes. Yet Chinese influences were not the only influences Galliano chose for his fw2010 show.

According to the show notes with this collection Galliano evoked the multi-faceted personality and lifestyle of Sherlock Holmes. This lead to four different types of men appearing on the runway.

At first Galliano’s moustached detective men wore several layers of large trenchcoats. The coats had leather and fur accents and a checked pattern.

Than the classic, dandy boys came by, wearing tight suits, ties, corsets(!) and bowler hats.

Next we saw several warrior types in multi-colored satin outfits showing a great deal of their bronzed bodies. Again we saw bruises and blood on these models.

At the end Chinese-looking men strolled the runway in (floral printed) silk, transparent and embellished garments.

The finale was the perfect ending of a spectaculair show. Flames were thrown high in the air as John Galliano himself appeared.
