PFW: sexy meets nautical at Anthony Vaccarello

The Belgian designer unveiled his Spring/Summer 2015 collection at the Cité de la Mode et du Design in the French capital.

Anthony Vaccarello arrived in Paris off the back of a successful Versus Versace capsule collection, shown earlier in the month in New York City, and brimming with his usual confidence. His latest show for his namesake brand was a typical mix of chic rock 'n' roll leather, asymmetric skirts and metallic straps and closures. This season he added some new elements, from sportswear touches (a sort of meta-fashion show-invite print on a sweatshirt in a bonded jersey) to a naval flirtation (boating stripes and blazers which came double-breasted and wide-lapelled, and bold brass buttons and anchor dress closures).

The designer played with sheer and semi sheer-silks, and pleats (which all happen to be very 'in' this season) and while there were plenty of thigh-flashing asymmetric skirts (some even had knicker flashing cut-outs in the center of the hip) and high-split dresses, there were also shorts and wide-leg trousers. Most importantly that meta theme came back with a graphic 'ANTHONY' split into capitals and adorned over different pieces, all to remind you who this was all about (if you hadn’t missed it with the thighs). The main man's models walked to an extended mix of Caribou’s "Can’t Do Without You" with side-parted hair and pared-back faces.
