John Galliano is certainly in great form this season, and we're not talking about his newly buff physique. After his triumphant Dior tour de force, Galliano showed an inventive, sophisticated and—dare we say it?—wearable collection for his signature label.

It all started with sporty elastic-waist plaid tracksuits and billowing blousons, superwide denim trousers, cargo pants and a sensational cropped, hooded puffy jacket. Things quickly moved along with warrior-princess dresses, massive army-green skirts with red detailing and ecru coats with floral cutout patterns. Galliano then allowed himself a series of precious soft-chiffon dresses with old English floral prints that called for a perfect cup of tea—and for fabulous flat boots that could've been made with the skin of a prehistoric reptile.

This season, Galliano has channeled his considerable creative energies into focused clothes that don't just stand out from the pack—they also work in the real world.
