Professor Galliano Debuts New Grunge Look

Though John Galliano seems to be going out of his way to clean up his act, at least one aspect of his image has remained unchanged: his penchant for totally batshit outfits (or at least hats).

Though John Galliano seems to be going out of his way to clean up his act, at least one aspect of his image has remained unchanged: his penchant for totally batshit outfits (or at least hats).

Of course, most recently, there was the controversial Hasidic-looking outfit he wore out in New York in February--but Galliano has never been one to dress like a sane person; and, in a way, we're glad he hasn't sacrificed his signature style just to win people over.

Case in point: the outfit at left.

Though we're not necessarily surprised to see him dressed like this, we're curious about what the inspiration for this particular get-up could have been.

Is it a nod to Hedi Slimane's grungy vision at Saint Laurent, the competitor to his own former design house?

Did he decide to wear all of his clothes at once instead of packing them to avoid checked baggage fees?

Is he trying to one-up Marc Jacobs in the surprising outfit category?

Whatever it is, we really hope this is how he dresses while teaching at Parsons and we're sure his potential future students agree.
