You'll have to be mighty disciplined to wear them, of course. "Model hot," as the parlance goes. Vaccarello likes what he likes, which is more than you can say for plenty of other young designers, but he's making clothes for a very small minority. That's why his tie-dyed denim was a promising development. It looked as cool on a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans (accessorized with a red belt and matching shoes made in collaboration with Stella Luna) as it did on one of those sexy, high-waisted minis with the cutouts on the side. Yes, the Vaccarello woman is the life of the party, but even in fashion, however much we hate to admit it, parties come to an end. To evolve, the designer will need to keep thinking beyond cocktail hour.
