Couture has always been about fantasy, and this opera coat by John Galliano is unparalleled in that department. Alight with topazes and appliques, an exaggerated turtle neck and batwing sleeves, this is a coat to make an entrance with — and to keep. It could have been worn in the 1920s; it is wearable today.
