Anthony Vaccarello Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2015 Paris
Anthony Vaccarello is seeing stars. And so he should be. The designer is now working hand in hand with Donatella Versace. The woman who once just inspired him has now hired him to be the creative director of the Versace brand.
A match made in heaven, if you will, because the two are soulmates when it comes to design aesthetic. So close that Vaccarello needs to be careful to keep giving a clear definition to his own brand.
However, for the moment things are looking good for Vaccarello. His fall/winter 2015 collection was a step up from last season thanks primarily to the leitmotif of the show — stars. It's a symbol that has inspired hundreds of designers over the years. But perhaps no one has captured its sexy sporty side quite like the designer did on Tuesday night.
He crafted the form out of silver grommets onto the hem of a skirt or reworked said skirt so the edge would become the points of a star. He embedded metal openwork stars into a short jacket and used its pointy shape as the front of a dress. The motif also looked great as fiery red print on a sleeveless top with sections cut out at the waist.
This collection worked on a number fronts and showed the designer is still taking his sexy silhouette seriously. But there were more than a few pieces that could work for women who don't have a pair of legs that go on for miles. Those were the ones with stars in their eyes at the end of the show.
