Galliano Goes Gonzo for Spring 2012
Galliano’s first spring ad has dropped, and apparently the beleaguered brand, which has being run by Dior sans designer John Galliano since his firing last March, is taking inspiration from a rather surprising icon: gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
Starring Constance Jablonski and Benhamin Eidem, the campaign has Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas written all over it: Thompson’s signature convertible, bucket hat, yellow aviators, and Hawaiian shirt (reinterpreted Galliano style, of course) all make appearances, and the press release states that the concept does indeed depict a Los Vegas road trip.
So, apparently Dior isn’t so opposed to abrasive, paranoid, alcohol-fueled loose cannons after all.
