Resort 2002 John Galliano Denim Trench Coat w Embroidered Detailing

This jacket is from John Galliano's own label and is an incredible example of his work from this time period. The label in the trench dates this to the Resort 2002 collection and this was the second last collection they did before they stopped using this style label. From a historical and development point of view of his ideas it is also interesting to see how he built on the ideas developed for this resort collection and then expanded on them and did more denim pieces for the Spring show that were also stitched and embroidered.

This Is an amazing trench coat that has all the elements of John's work that you would want it to have. It has this amazing oversized feel to it and there is this play on proportion that it has while still staying balanced and very wearable. The fabric that it is made out of is a very light weight soft blue denim that really plays into that slouchy feel while giving it volume and shape. The fabric was top-stitched in a rainbow of colors over the denim. These are little stacked abstract lines of color that work their way over the trench to add the most interesting design element. The styling is a play on the trench with those classic front panels over each shoulder. Even there he has added his own twist and added a top set pocket that is functional and just quirky and genius. There is a curved panel that buttons into place just under the neck and the way this all lies in place is fantastic. It is a testament to his skills that it still all looks equally genius when you wear the trench open and unbuttoned. The waist is cinched in with a buckle belt and that is picked up with straps that buckle and wrap around each cuff. Pockets sit on each hip and there is a double row of buttons to the waist at the front to close it. It is meant to be slightly more oversized so should work on a range of sizes. The denim is very light in weight and I think you could easily style this to wear it on its own as a dress so it has an entirely second life as far as styling it goes. It appears to have never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition

Unlined and buttons to close at the front and then you cinch on the waist with the belt. Tagged a US 4 but cut to be worn oversized and it cinches and gathers in easily. It should work on a variety of sizes.
