Lot 0300 Details

Description
A fine John Galliano hound's tooth checked 'Dior-esque' suit, Spring-Summer, 1995, with purple satin Galliano Paris label, the jacket with bust darts which continue to form lapels, cord wrapped buttons, the sleeves with leather piped openings at the inner elbows edged with three small black satin buttons, matching slim pencil skirt, bust approx 92cm, 36in, waist 66cm 26in (2) Madonna wore a short-sleeved version of this suit in her 'Take a Bow' video, 1994: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDeiovnCv1o. Galliano was appointed creative director briefly for Maison Givenchy in July 1995 - his couture collection being presented in January 1996 (A/W 96/97). The 'New Look' hourglass silhouette of this suit presaged Galliano's move to Maison Dior in October 1996 - his first couture show for them taking place in January 1997. Bernard Arnault must have noticed the numerous Dior references in Galliano's own label s/s 1995 collection.
