Expect even higher leg slits from the next Versus collection than usual: WWD is reporting a rumor that Anthony Vaccarello, the man who made Anja Rubik's right hip bone famous, will be the next guest designer for the Donatella Versace-orchestrated line. And when WWD reports a rumor... it's usually true.
If, in fact, it is true, Paris-based Vaccarello will be the second guest designer to take over the creative director role at Versus since Christopher Kane left his post at the label last November--which was followed by Versace announcing a total reformatting of the brand. The first guest designer, British up-and-comer J.W. Anderson, unveiled his androgynous, club-kid friendly collection for Versus back in June--and as much as we loved it, we think it's definitely time for someone to step in and inject the line with a little more sex appeal. Vaccarello could be just the guy for the job.
We've reached out to Versus for comment and will update when we hear back.
