Anthony Vaccarello Designer: Anthony Vaccarello
- "Belgium's Anthony Vaccarello, known for his famously 'slit-up-to-there' dresses looked to swim suits for inspiration." [AFP]
- "Next season Vaccarello might do well to tone it down a notch or three." [AP]
- "'Today is brought to you by the letter V,' a rogue Elmo might say." [
- " If there's a way to show off more upper thigh—outside of just sending the models out in bathing suits—no one else has come up with it." [Style.com]
- "Vaccarello sent out the skimpiest summer dresses, fashioned from the bonded jersey traditionally used for swimwear, on his admittedly ultra-honed, pool-side fabulous, va-va-voom cabine of glamazons." [Vogue.com]
- "Not that you go to Anthony Vaccarello for demure, but I like this suede mini dress!" [Wmagazine.com]
- "The sum of the parts was Versace-esque Eighties attitude." [WWD]
Cédric Charlier Designer: Cédric Charlier
- "Minimalist designs with a heavy emphasis on geometric shapes." [AFP]
- "Despite the diverse musings, the collection held together thanks to Charlier's cleanly-cut, hard edged silhouettes and the leitmotif of geometric lines, on bands around the body or on lapels." [AP]
- "You'd probably need to be ordered to be seduced by clothes as all-but-monastic as these." [Style.com]
- "Silhouettes that appeared simple but weren’t reductive." [
