INSPIRATION Francesco Scognamiglio SS||2009... Saint Laurent SS||2017

Anthony Vaccarello’s debut show as new creative director for Saint Laurent was one of the most awaited this season, alongside the Maria Grazia Chiuri one for Christian Dior. To be Hedi Slimane’s replacement must have been a fairly demanding venture for the Italian-Belgian fashion designer who  has decided to close his own line to concentrate on the new responsibility. For the SS||2017 collection [right] Vaccarello has been widely inspired by the eighties and some archive pieces from Yves Saint Laurent. As for the fierce one-silver-covered-nipple-out styling, a particular look from Francesco Scognamiglio’s SS||2009 show [left] might have been an inspiration.
