Regarding Saint Laurent’s image, Anthony Vaccarello states, “I never think it has to be global.” He elaborates, “Everyone is intrigued by Saint Laurent because [it] has that Parisian French image. And you like it or you don’t like it.”

Drawing inspiration from brand founder Yves Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello says, “He knew exactly the tradition, the couture, how to make things.” Vaccarello adds, “But I like how he always perverted it in a way, or twisted it…mixing things that were not supposed to be mixed together, or playing with bad taste.”

Betty Catroux, a muse of Yves Saint Laurent, compares Anthony Vaccarello to the late designer. “Anthony is like Yves,” suggests Catroux. “He adapts everything to the modern world, which is exactly what Yves did for his time. It is more than fashion, it is history.”
