Little has been said in John Galliano’s favor since his falling from grace in that most unhappy, unpleasant and unforgettable drunk terrace talk. Fashion people and mortals alike blended in a general meh, frowning and looking away in disgust, leaving John Galliano all alone on the shrine of the fashion talent. For he is a truly talented designer, no doubt about that.
So what do we do? Look for profit and tranquility or give another shot to fashion? To talent? Rumors putting Marc Jacobs in charge of Christian Dior started to circulate. Fashion people keep their cool and don’t comment much. Too bad. Here’s some with an extra pair: Vogue Italy’s Franca Sozzani saying Galliano’s place is chez Dior. What do you think?
“Hire back John Galliano. Look, I understand their point of view. I understand they couldn’t just say, ‘Bad boy! We forgive you! Come back!’ But it’s really a pity. And I will never believe he believed what he said. I think he was drunk and alone in a bar. When people go crazy, they go crazy. It’s a human case, it’s not political or religious.”
