What will the change in creative direction mean for musicians and the stylists who dress them? Only time will tell.
Paris Fashion Week kicked off with a bang on Tuesday evening (Sept. 27), where former Versus Versace creative director Anthony Vaccarello made his debut at the helm of one of the city’s most storied luxury houses, Saint Laurent.
Staged on the dirt and plaster foundations of what will soon become the company’s new headquarters -- from which a giant, white-lit YSL logo hung suspended from a tall crane -- Vaccarrello introduced the new Saint Laurent. Gone were the metallic babydoll dresses, devil-may-care leather jackets and supersize furs of predecessor Hedi Slimane’s L.A. rocker-chic tenure; this collection hearkened back to the heady, glamorous heyday of the original Yves Saint Laurent, pouf sleeves and all.
