JUST two short weeks after bringing the Versus express, packed with sex and sass appeal, to London Fashion Week, Anthony Vaccerello fulfilled his eponymous fashion ambition this afternoon as the Paris shows commenced.There is a demand for designers that helm two houses to show differentiation between their own labels and, in this case, Donatella’s darling, and today it looked like Vaccarello had made such moves. Crisp white shirts with denim-blue rose prints (interestingly also found on the Versus catwalk) tucked into high-waisted jeans stood out a mile from the short-skimming lengths of last, and every other, season, while metallic studding in a ruby hue depicting pixelated visages ventured onto more artisanal ground. It was refreshing to see the shift in Vaccarello’s sensibility, however coming onto the catwalk in the midst of the usual Vaccarello hallmarks – skin-tight striped tailoring, gold hardware, asymmetric cut-outs and so on – made the usual cohesion of his shows fall slightly out of sync. There either needed to be more, or less. It wasn’t a show from which his cult customers would have walked away from disappointed though – the Vaccarello DNA was diversified most successfully in the sheer, embellished shift and shirt story that was elegant in a new way and could easily be incorporated into an existing devotee’s wardrobe.
