"Castaway" was the first thought that went through my head as I saw the photos of the Maison Martin Margiela couture, John Galliano's debut for the house and the one he designed after three years of silence.
It was a small, but rather powerful collection of 25 looks that seemed to be telling a story about the glory of beautiful days torn to shreds by the winds and the times...
I don't know what was on the designer's mind, but for me it looked as if he somehow inhaled the memories of the last few years, his feelings, into the cloths... The moments when Galliano himself, perhaps, felt as if he was shipwrecked, stranded and alone.
And just as if he really was communicating his emotions though metaphors, Galliano sent out the final model wearing a crown and a jewelled altar, a sign of safe haven and hope, a symbol of a new chapter in a fashion poetry book.
