The piece also quoted Galliano's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, who said, “Your accusations are not at all correct.” And she's right, because Galliano has been wearing this exact outfit for ages, right down to the ringlets in his hair — which are definitely not peyos, as they circle his whole head. The exaggerated bowler hat, baggy cropped pants, and long jacket are such well-known components of his uniform that Bill Gaytten, Galliano's successor at his namesake line, modeled an entire menswear collection on them for spring 2012. Indeed, the hat Galliano wore yesterday looks to be one of Gaytten's recent designs.
