Legendary Illustrator Tony Viramontes was noted as a huge inspiration for Anthony Vaccarello’s Fall collection. The sensual excess of the Eighties, so perfectly portrayed in Viramontes’ work, was brought to life by the designer’s signature asymmetric minis + hip high slits, but also through the structured ruffles along the front of mini dresses + as well as the use of red + black. There were however, a few surprises. Turtleneck dickeys were found in the collection but not the way you would think. For Vaccarello, it made perfect sense to pair dickeys with a more exposed look like a strapless dress, giving the once stale accessory a modern redux. Another sign of the Eighties + first for Vaccarello, were his pleated pants. Some pants were paired with Perfecto jackets as well as tucked in blouses with no bra, making Vacarello accessible, to most women who do not have the lean build of runway models.
