ANTHONY VACCARELLO

Anthony Vaccarello is a Belgian fashion designer and currently creative director at Saint Laurent. Prior to this he held the position of creative director at Versus Versace, as well as designing his own eponymous line. In April 2016, Saint Laurent announced the appointment of Anthony Vaccarello as Creative Director. With a thorough understanding of the brand’s spirit, he has since his arrival, strongly empowered a highly desirable vision.

Anthony Vaccarello’s collections are a sophisticated tribute to Paris, the atelier and the savoir-faire, conceived with a contemporary perspective. ("Savoir-faire" in this case refers to "know-how," in the design, making, and selling of clothes.)

Since his appointment, he has affirmed his sharp, 360 degrees vision for Saint Laurent, pushing the brand forward with clarity and determination, mastering the House’s dynamics, its power over the collective imagination and developing an all-round vision, which is bringing the brand into the future while respecting its DNA.

For two years, Vaccarello worked under Karl Lagerfeld at Fendi, specializing in fur designs. Then in January 2009, he moved back to Paris, making his eponymous ready-to-wear collection debut, showing five looks in the window of the Parisian boutique Maria Luisa. After an introduction to Lou Doillon at a dinner party, Doillon modeled in Vaccarello's lookbook, shot in a parking garage. With high hemlines and sexy power dresses becoming the core of his subsequent collections, he gained a celebrity following, dressing Jennifer Lopez, Miley Cyrus, Gwyneth Paltrow and Alessandra Ambrosio.

By September 2014, Vaccarello was creating a capsule collection for Versus Versace. He went on to create several collections for Versus until April 2016 when it was announced that he had been appointed creative director of Saint Laurent Paris.
