Media is abuzz with news of John Galliano’s return to fashion. Womenswear Daily (WWD) reported that Oscar de la Renta has invited the disgraced designer to “spend some time with him in his studio over the next three weeks to the run-up of to the New York Fashion Week.” It is believed that Anna Wintour had a hand in brokering this highly unorthodox “in residence” agreement. However Oscar made it clear this was in no way a succession plan. “Am I retiring? Is John going to replace me?” de la Renta posed, unsolicited. “Certainly not. I hope to be around for a long time.”
However what grabbed my eyes was the attire Galliano posed in. He has draped a cotton sari with ornate border over his boxers and paired it with a shirt and a jacket. Not clear what he has done with the palla. Seems like he has wrapped it around the sling of his satchel bag. And yes, don’t miss out on the anklet on his right foot!
