1991 John Galliano Documented Runway Black & Blue Military Inspired Cropped Vest
An incredibly chic and well-documented John Galliano turquoise lycra and black fleece military inspired cropped vest from his beloved 1991 spring/summer 'Honcho Woman' collection. These early runway examples of his work are extremely collectable and are becoming so hard to find. Pieces like this are also a very important chapter in his design journey because it pre-dates his years at Christian Dior and Givenchy. John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. He mingled his references in often surprising juxtapositions to create extravagant yet intricately engineered and meticulously tailored clothes. This whimsical vest is everything you look for in early Galliano fashion. The neck is cut high like a military jacket and the over-sized lapels are decorated with golden cords. All this detail is carefully sewn on by hand. The bold turquoise and black block coloring mixed with draped lapels updates the uniform look in a clever modernized way. Wear it with trousers or a maxi skirt; styling options are endless! A rare wearable piece of documented fashion history.
