Anthony Vaccarello has swapped the Eiffel Tower for the iconic Stature of Liberty for his latest SS19 show.

 

Facing Manhattan, the impressive open scaffoldings complete with a marble floor seem to be in conversation with the iconic New York skyline where models paraded in the latest pieces for the Parisian house. Vaccarello said in a statement:

 

“New York is freedom, a city brimming with energy and possibilities: the perfect backdrop to frame the spirit of this menswear collection. Crossing wardrobe boundaries, dressing women too.”

 

And how has he fused the aesthetics of the City of Lights with the City that Never Sleeps? The designer envisioned an urban macadam cowboy.  A seventies spirit evoked by short jackets paired with high-waisted trousers.  The iconic saharienne deeply explored and reinterpreted. Intricate embroideries and refined textures emphasize the sharp attitude of the collection. The hero pieces include embellished red bomber jacket, snakeskin footwear and wide brim hats.

 

The edgy codes of the house are present with skinny silhouettes, texture play on an all-black palette, razor-sharp tailoring with nods to the brand founders archives. The closing part of the show saw male models strut down in skin tight trousers, slim scarves with upper bodies covered in silver paint. It’s still Saint Laurent, but the Vaccarello way.
