Anthony Vaccarello has served as creative director at Yves Saint Laurent for the past three years. He seems particularly comfortable in his role and he explores every parts of Yves Saint Laurent’s legacy.
“Everything starts with the shoulder,” Anthony Vaccarello shared. “I want to give more power to women, and I think they need the shoulder.”
After his debut at New York Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2019 season, Anthony Vaccarello is back in Paris. He has presented his Fall/Winter 2019 collection for Saint Laurent. The catwalk ended with a glow-in-the-dark finale.
The collection is based on some 80’s references highlighted with sculptural lines and sharp tailoring. Metallics, sequins and glitter were used everywhere; on collared shirts, blazers, bomber jackets… but the black and white of Saint Laurent was here to balance out and maintain the elegant aesthetic.
During the fashion show, only one color was used: the red on a leather biker jacket and a button-up shirt. To make the line less serious, Anthony Vaccarello has created a pair of leather bottoms.
With the accessories, furs and fedoras were here at the end of the catwalk. As the end of the show was in the dark, the models revealed fluorescent dress shoes and glow-in-the-dark shades.
