Are you the sort that secretly goes out in your pyjamas and a man's overcoat to buy the papers and a latte of a Sunday morning? More importantly, do you actually mind if you run into someone when in such a state of sartorial disarray? The good news is that, should such an unexpected rendezvous occur, over the next six months at least, it will not be seen as a fashion faux pas. Instead, any onlookers may pause gravely, nod wisely, and gaze on in admiration. You are a total slob no longer, my friend. Instead you are, wait for it, on trend.

Is it just me, or is it not a little strange that an Ossie Clark collection is being relaunched? Of course, the need to keep the world's big brands going, often for largely commercial reasons, is nothing new. The likes of Cristobal Balenciaga, Coco Chanel and Christian Dior may be long gone, but the houses they lent their names to are booming in the hands of some of today's most fêted designers - in this instance, Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano, respectively.

Stripped of the cartoon glamour and self-conscious flash that has dominated the Christian Dior catwalk for many seasons, John Galliano's show yesterday was a lesson in how a designer with a clear vision can maintain the relevancy of a fashion brand. It was a timely reminder.

John Galliano is famed for travelling to far-flung cultures in search of inspiration. In Paris last night at his spring/summer 2005 show, a thundering Nirvana soundtrack, crystal-encrusted psychedelic prints and army boots suggested destinations familiar to British music fans: Glastonbury, or any one of the other rock festivals where a sense of the absurd is always in fashion. For accessories, Galliano plundered the cheerfully weird wardrobe of acid-trippers for inflatable hats, deely boppers and helium balloons that bobbed behind the models.
