It looks like Anthony Vaccarello’s first turn designing for Versus’ Spring 2015 collection went over well as he’s just been appointed the new creative director for the label. In what seems like a perfect pairing – Vaccarello’s sultry aesthetic fits right in with the Versace/Versus canon – the designer says he will continue to create pieces true to the label, drawing inspiration from the 90s. Last season, Vaccarello showed a parade of saucy LBDs, so we’re expecting the sexpot factor to continue.
Vaccarello is expected to show his first collection for Versus as creative director for Fall 2015, heading up both men’s and women’s offerings. But don’t mark your calendars yet; the designer says the show will not follow the fashion calendar and that the collection’s debut will come as a surprise.
We can’t wait to see his next work for Versus – whenever it finally arrives.
