Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2014–Continuing his love affair with a sleek and sexy silhouette, Anthony Vaccarello presented a fall-winter 2014 collection that was inspired by eighties fashion illustrator Tony Viramontes. Marking the first day of Paris Fashion Week, the Belgian designer mixed rock and roll glam with Parisian cool for the new season with a color palette of black and red. Party girl dresses with sculptural detailing and sexy cutouts gave way to leather motorcycle jackets and slim-fitted pants.

Versace x Anthony Vaccarello – Following up collaborations with Christopher Kane and JW Anderson, Versace has decided to team up for a collection of ready-to-wear and accessories with Belgian designer Anthony Vaccarello. The 31-year-old launched his label in 2008 and won the ANDAM Award in 2012. Vaccarello’s aesthetic is described as very sexy with a focus on body conscious designs. “Anthony’s clothes have everything that I love: they are sensual, dynamic, daring. He is a natural, and has the confidence and talent to push fashion where he wants it and where it is relevant for today’s women. I can’t wait to collaborate with him, and to see Versus Versace through his eyes,” says Donatella Versace about the collection.
Vaccarello’s Skin Show – Showing on the first day of Paris Fashion Week, the spring-summer 2014 collection from Anthony Vaccarello’s eponymous label displayed the Belgian designer’s body conscious designs that were not afraid to show a little, or a lot of skin. A color palette of mostly black with pops of white or red revealed dresses and skirts in slinky silhouettes. The designs were embellished with large and round silver gems which either accented cut-away swimsuits or completely decorated skirts with futuristic, V-shaped hemlines. Despite all the show of skin, there were some more covered-up elements like cropped jackets in leather and slouchy trousers.
