What came after were clothes fit for a trot through the forest and a rompin the boudoir: a mix of English equestrian gentility and Frenchcourtesan frill.

There were riding jackets, cavalry coats, jodhpurs,and three-button vests in plaids and tweeds, along with riding boots andbuttery leather satchels.

To this, Galliano added ruffly, pale, floralsilk dresses; cozy knits; thigh-high boots; flouncy crochet dresses;lacy hosiery and sheer, nightgowny dresses for evening. There were alsoa few tiered leather dresses that seemed like a fusion of the twothemes.
