Saint Laurent has announced the new head designer of Saint Laurent, and it is Anthony Vaccarello.
In a press release:
“Mr. Saint Laurent is a legendary figure for his creativity, style, and audacity. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the history of this extraordinary house,” Vaccarello said of his appointment.
“His modern, pure aesthetic is the perfect fit for the maison,” said president and chief executive officer of Yves Saint Laurent, Francesca Bellettini. “Anthony Vaccarello impeccably balances elements of provocative femininity and sharp masculinity in his silhouettes. He is the natural choice to express the essence of Yves Saint Laurent.” (Note that the press release refers to the house as ‘Yves Saint Laurent’ rather than the controversial ‘Saint Laurent’ rebrand introduced by Vaccarello’s predecessor.)
Vaccarello style is a combination of “cool and sexy”, with cut-away dresses reveling the female body.
I think Vaccarello will bring such an impact with his clothing to the maison. We can’t wait to see what he brings.
