John Galliano’s exuberant, eclectic approach to men’s wear is about to find a broader audience as Galliano, the designer’s diffusion line produced by Ittierre, launches in Milan on Monday, during men’s fashion week. For its first men’s outing, Galliano is definitely hitting a young streety vibe. The collection is focused on cool casual outerwear, stonewashed denim, distressed leather, tartan wool and sporty fleece.

He cobbled classic pieces such as a tartan wool duffle with the sleeves of a military parka, and a denim jacket with tailored sleeves. The collection also uses the famous “Galliano gazette” print, presented this time in a subdued black and gray or military green version for the linings of the parkas, on the quilted nylon down jackets or overprinted on denim pieces. Here, a preview of the contemporary sportswear line, and a few words with the designer and consummate showman.
