De la Renta came out for his bow, as he always does, but Galliano was in the building. When his PR chief was asked if Galliano had worked on the collection, she demurred, saying, “Well, he is backstage.” There was that, and then there were the clothes themselves. Certain looks seemed very much to bear the Englishman’s hand, especially the opening jackets with their draped necklines and flaring hips; there was something of Dior’s classic Bar silhouette in them. Among the other clues that Galliano was in the house: The marcelled locks and deeply shaded, greasy eyes were familiar from his Paris days.

Then again, other pieces seemed more like vintage de la Renta. The 80-year-old will mark his 50th year of designing clothes in New York in 2013, so there isn’t much territory that he hasn’t covered. Nonetheless, it’s safe to say that he owns looks like this show’s white-ribbon-embroidered black party dress. The exaggerated toile prints and jacquards said America, not la France.

    I was surprised to like most of the designs, then I read the description. “John Galliano.” Now it makes sense.
