Fashion Week: Domenico  Vacca

Domenico Vacca is best known for his exquisite tailoring of suits for both men and worm. Each piece is created using the ingredients of the old Italian guard: fine fabrics and exquisite tailoring and execution. Domenico Vacca has stores all over the world but just become a Madison Avenue neighbor this Spring. His collection presented, this weekend, had a 40s charm with a 2010 sophistication.

Domenico Vacca Spring 2010:

Who is the customer: Those who devour fine tailoring including, Ronald Lauder, Edgar Bronfman Jr., Pepe Fanjul and Kanye West.

Why buy: You're tired of labels, big brands and over exposed designs.

What to buy: If you're not in the market for a $4,000 suit then get red carpet ready. There's no way you'll blend in the crowd with the lime green gown with skinny teal belt. Beware, that slit can be dangerous.

Bypass: The Chuck Bass wanna-bes who showed up in mass to support Domenico. (Wish we had pictures.)

Overall contribution to fashion: Domenico reminds us that despite grunge and bo-ho chic, glamour is always in style.
