6 Reasons Why Anthony Vaccarello Makes Sense for Saint Laurent

Anthony Vaccarello

The looks Anthony Vaccarello has designed under his own brand and for Versus Versace have always been short, sexy, and strong. Here, a prediction of what the Saint Laurent girl will be wearing as Vaccarello takes the reins from Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent.


He’s mastered the Very Little Black Dress. Since the launch of his namesake label six years ago, Anthony Vaccarello has made his name on up-to-there skirt slits and sky high hemlines. Photo courtesy Anthony Vaccarello.


Mr. Yves Saint Laurent introduced the iconic lace up dress famously worn by Verushka. Anthony Vaccarello sent his own thigh-grazing versions down the runway for fall 2016. Photo courtesy Anthony Vaccarello.


He has a rock and roll side. Vaccarello favors sheer blouses, sexy leather, studs and — just like Hedi Slimane — a star print. Photo courtesy Anthony Vaccarello.


He embraces a bit of shine. The ’80s came back in a big way for Slimane’s Fall 2016 farewell collection a few weeks ago in Paris — a decade that Vaccarello certainly doesn’t shy away from. Photo courtesy Anthony Vaccarello.


He can shred jeans like the best of them, as seen in this look from the fall runway show. Photo courtesy Anthony Vaccarello.


He gives good shoulder. Both Slimane and Vaccarello have turned out great one-shoulder party dresses, something that we may continue to see on the Saint Laurent runway as Vaccarello steps into the role. Photo courtesy Anthony Vaccarello.
