Alexandre Vauthier went back to basics with his 24-look fall/winter Haute Couture collection in a way that only he could.
The pieces came to life in a new studio to which all of his production was moved and created with a minimal team. everything about this collection was French – the materials were sourced locally as access to fabrics from overseas was difficult, and the inspiration behind the collection was very Parisian too.
The collection was presented via a series of images showing the audience how life in lockdown would be like while wearing Haute Couture. Shot in the home and around the streets of Paris, the series of images were elegant and French yet bold and glamourous at the same time.
There were classic staples such as a classic black dress, cropped Balero jackets, hareem style trousers – all of which were ‘glammed up’ with sequins, embroidery, tassels and feathers.
Party dresses were a huge part of this collection, making us believe that the time will come to party again! Fuchsia pink glistening gold lurex and rich greens were some of the key colours that really made these pieces stand out and gave a nod to Hollywood’s golden era.
The timelessness of these pieces is key to this collection as we are still unsure when red carpets will once again be open however this colourful collection proves there can still be glamour today, even during testing times.
