John Galliano shows us how to make do and mend with his multi-pattern shirt


Oh, what the hell: we’ve already seared your eyeballs once today with that bright orange dress, so we may as well show you this John Galliano shirt too. Hopefully your sight will be back to normal by tomorrow.

John Galliano clearly scoured the floor of his workroom for the scraps he used in this shirt, and this wartime “make do and mend” attitude is an example to us all in these difficult times.

It’s just the CHOICE of scraps we have a problem with…
