According to Anthony Vaccarello, who showed his Spring 2014 collection the first day of Paris Fashion Week, skin is definitely in. Aside from the omnipresent crop top and several mesh tanks, the most innovative provocation was on a series of dresses and skirts that featured a triangle-shaped hemline — it covered just what it needed to and nothing more. Other dresses with waist-high slits were held in place by leather bands and giant metal studs, which were repeated in larger quantity on loose-knit metallic sweaters. Making up for the square-inches of clothes was a deep palette rich in texture. Even the ankle-strap heels had a velvety look that you don't often find in the less-is-more months of Spring and Summer.
