Donatella Versace protégé Anthony Vaccarello certainly creates provocative clothes: he likes his skirts short and his blouses sheer. But for fall, the Versus guest designer worked the skimpy angle in a whole new way. Vaccarello focused in on the collar, showing plenty of turtlenecks and dickeys, the once-vilified accessory that is making a bit of a comeback this season. (J. Mendel, for one, showed fur dickeys in several looks.)
To be sure, Vaccarello's dickeys weren't tucked under a v-neck, Eddie Griswold-style. Instead, they were worn with strapless-leather mini dresses, attached to see-through blouses or paired with open-to-the-waist button-ups.
But it wasn't just about the scant. Menswear classics -- grey suiting, shearling bombers -- grounded the collection in a meaningful way. Vaccarello appears determined to keep things tasteful, even when he's letting a bit of nipple peek through.
