This write up will not be long, only for the reason that it doesn’t need to be. The show was one of those moments in time when all of the elements of detail harmonise and give life to each other. This show felt really good because it gave the impression that Anthony Vacarello was being himself while still honouring the codes of the house that Yves Saint Laurent had laid out. Taking place just below the iconic symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower, the show unofficially paid homage to Yves Saint Laurent and his role in shaping the industry. The catwalk was outside, and timed to start just after the Eiffel Tower began it’s glittery, evening show. Held at the public Jardins du Trocadéro, the show could be viewed by anyone any of those who loved fashion enough to stay and watch. The collection itself was super sexy, super cool and glamorous to no end. The glamour presented here is reminiscent of the kind that was so quintessential to Laurent’s work – it was fabulous, colourful, and grand. Vacarello embraced this spirit and made it immediate with his characteristic short hemlines, fitted silhouettes, and sexy bohemian rock aesthetic.
The show had all of Paris and the fashion industry buzzing. See our favourite outfits from the collection here (with a few front-row faces thrown in, we see you Kate Moss, Frances Bean, Chiara Ferragni and Courtney Love).
