Designer: John Galliano
Season: Spring Summer 2009
Love him or hate him, Galliano is one of fashion history's greatest designers. When he gets a theme he really sticks with it. This particular season was inspired by anime, manga, and punk rock, but it ended up looking like a bright and zesty version of Pirates of the Carribean. Maybe that's because unlike actual human beings, many anime characters have naturally Kool-Aid blue hair. Perhaps if you just wore a piece or two with more subtler clothes, it might work... but when it's all together, it just looks like a really horrible rave where everyone's an idiot.
