Anthony Vaccarello cast a spell last season with a Saint Laurent collection that took cues from Paloma Picasso, whose theatrical sense of dress in the ’80s was said to have inspired house founder Yves Saint Laurent and nudged his creativity out of bourgeois codes.

For fall, Vaccarello name-checked Nancy Cunard, a shipping heiress, and writer whose reed-thin body and stacks of ivory bracelets made her a style icon in the ’20 and ’30s. In his show notes, the designer noted that she “dressed audaciously ahead of her time — giving a masculine wardrobe her own indelible imprint.”
