RUNWAY & REVIEW: Anthony Vaccarello
The Vaccarello woman is sexy, full-stop. The top models often walking Vaccarello’s shows tend not to look as sexy on other designers runways as they do on Anthony Vaccarello’s runway, wearing his graphic, gravity defying and minuscule creations. The Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Anja Rubik‘s of this world exude confidence when wearing his outfits but not all of the models looked comfortable in the higher-than-high, spikier-than-spiked heels and the sculpted squares of material just covering their pride.
Sexuality belongs to it’s owner. If you feel comfortable with yours then Vaccarello is the man, his woman is unapologetic and causes a reaction when she walks into a room. His sartorial vocabulary is all about fierce zips across breasts, bandaged material across hips and extreme play on sporty-meets-evening-wear hybrids. Vaccarello’s woman is the tomboy turned vamp. She’s a fantasy glimpsed under the magic light of the moon, indeed such is the shade of midnight blue that the designer continues to adore.
In terms of themes we are clearly out at sea, Vaccarello played with mixing summer boating attire, bermuda shorts and yachting jackets with high-pitched evening glamour. The show closed with shimmering blue giving way to four looks made of a kind of thin jacquard of metallic turquoise and gold. Vaccarello’s mermaids, the woman many conjure in their imagination, blink and she has gone.
