ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER - HAUTE COUTURE FW22
Vauthier's collection featured over-the-top showstoppers shimmering with metallic silver sequins against strong suits of a strong oversized variety. Traceeze and fluted asymmetrical shapes alternated between sleek, slinky, and body-con silhouettes, while revealing drapings stopped short of being overtly provocative. In addition to the frothy feathers, loose plissé panels added an extra touch of sensuality.
There was something illusory about the boot/pant hybrids, worn with almost every tenue, as it was hard to tell if they were just slouchy boots or if they were pants crashing onto a shoe as the designer described them. The ineffable vibe that Vauthier seems to have mastered gave the looks an extra dose of French cool.
