INSPIRATION John Galliano SS 2011… Gucci FW 2017||18

John Galliano for his Spring Summer 2011 collection has been inspired by the twenties con artist Maria Lani who persuaded the era’s leading artists to paint her portrait for a film she claimed their work would star in. Then, she sold them all and escaping to America without trace. Galliano made every model a separate artwork, with “each outfit in this collection as individual as each portrait”. Individual outfit fashion shows are being a thing since a while now, and Gucci is one of the brands, that through the work of Alessandro Michele, has turned this way of showing into perfection. For FW 2017||18 the styling of one of the 119 looks Gucci showed in Milan might have been inspired by Galliano.
