Anthony Vaccarello(Italian-Belgian designer) leaves Versus Versace and replace Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent as the new creative director.
"While I'm sad to see him leave the Versace family, I wish Anthony Vaccarello tremendous success with his next chapter," said Donatella Versace, according to the New York Times. Also, Francesca Bellettini, the president and chief executive of Yves Saint Laurent, said of Mr. Vaccarello, "His modern, pure aesthetic is the perfect fit for the maison."
According to WWD, Vaccarello, will present his first collection for Saint Laurent during Paris Fashion Week in October.
Though the designer have been all about sensuality and skin showing when it comes to Versus Versace, his aesthetics clearly have an essence of Indie rock which very well compliments the sensibility of the French house Yves Saint Laurent.
We can't wait to see what the designer brings on the runway. Wish him loads of luck.
