the tramp.

charlie chaplin‘s “tramp” character was revived by john galliano in his spring/summer 2010 runway show in paris. i can’t say i particularly like the looks – but the endearingly theatrical galliano always knows how to put on a show.

watch the runway show here.

charlie chaplin's "tramp", circa 1910.

  1. dang. i would wear any of these pieces! surprising stuff. it jibes (jives?) with what the economical climate is like.


  2. the little mustache is particularly relevant.

    in all seriousness though – i agree with you for the darker outfits, but the lighter versions conjure to mind monet’s park paintings… ladies in hats and bustles, with parasols.
