LONDON, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 19: Creative director Anthony Vaccarello appears at on the runway at the Versus show during London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 on September 19, 2015 in London, England.

It was announced by Kering yesterday that creative director of Versus Versace, Anthony Vaccarello has left the brand after 3 years of service and is now creative director for Yves Saint Laurent. Versus Versace is a diffusion line from the popular Italian luxury brand Versace.

Anthony Vaccarello is taking over from former YSL creative director Hedi Slimane, who Harvard Business Review has just recently referred to as the Steve Jobs of fashion, quite a grand title.

Anthony clearly has a lot to prove over at YSL with Luca Solca, head of luxury goods at Exane BNP Paribas, saying “Vaccarello is one of the most reputed designers on the market today, he has done a great job at Versace. Slimane’s shoes are big to fill at Saint Laurent. Vaccarello would clearly have a challenge cut out for himself there“.

We’re excited to see what this new creative leadership means for the YSL brand.
