Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) and Kering announced the appointment of Anthony Vaccarello as Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent recently. 

Anthony Vaccarello has been the creative director of his eponymous brand since 2009, which he founded following two years at Fendi. . He has also spent three years at Versus Versace, first as an independent consultant designer and then, since 2015, as creative director.

Francesca Bellettini, President and CEO of Yves Saint Laurent, said, “I am extremely happy to have Anthony Vaccarello take the creative helm of Yves Saint Laurent. His modern, pure aesthetic is the perfect fit for the maison. Anthony Vaccarello impeccably balances elements of provocative femininity and sharp masculinity in his silhouettes. He is the natural choice to express the essence of Yves Saint Laurent. I am enthusiastic about embarking on a new era with Anthony Vaccarello, and together bringing the maison further success.” 

Anthony Vaccarello said: “Mr Saint Laurent is a legendary figure for his creativity, style and audacity. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the history of this extraordinary house.”

 François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering, added: “I am very proud to welcome such a vivid and young force among today's creative fashion talents to Yves Saint Laurent. Anthony Vaccarello's unique style will greatly express the maison's creative signature and fashion authority, building on the brand's solid foundations, and further developing it to realise its full potential. Together with the entire Yves Saint Laurent team, Anthony Vaccarello will strongly contribute to the maison's growing accomplishments.”

Anthony Vaccarello will present his first collection for the maison in October 2016, during Paris Spring-Summer 2017 fashion week. (HO)
