John Galliano to Maison Martin Margiela!

According to WWD, John Galliano is headed to Maison Martin Margiela to become creative director.  It is both exciting and baffling at the same time.  On the surface it seems a bit of an odd fit for Galliano, a designer of lush, exotic dreams of fantasy fashion and the paired down all white house of Margiela.  But there is the couture - and January haute couture will be Galliano's debut for Margiela - the ready-to-wear and the secondary line MM6.  

And then again - maybe there are some similarities...

I can hardly wait until January!
