Anthony Vaccarello's modernité sportive

SHOWstudio's Paris Fashion Week began in earnest this afternoon with Anthony Vaccarello and his defined and refined take on sport and sensuality. The Cité de la Mode at du Design's airport-sized runway provided the backdrop for Vaccarello's mostly navy collection of contouring and caressing utilitarianism with asymmetry expressed most interestingly in a demi-culotte effect in dresses, a grand finale of which appeared on Karlie Kloss, the last in a stellar list of models eager to support Vaccarello getting into his stride just in time for Summer 2012.
