Known for its precise and intricate designs, Alexandre Vauthier is a fashion house that brings out the best of French fashion entangled with international influences. With luxurious and detailed garments, Alexandre Vauthier Spring/ Summer 2023 Haute Couture show builds on this legacy.
Taking place in Paris, the show features an array of detailed and creative designs. Sequins, sharp silhouettes, feathers, and ruffles are all staples of the pieces, which are shown in bold colors like bright red and silver.
The bold and glamorous collection explores movement and the burst of energy that comes after hard times. With gowns, blazers, and fur jackets Alexandre Vauthier displays all the reasons we adore couture. Both elegant and bold, the collection is a must-see for lovers of real haute couture.
Alexandre Vauthier roared back to the runway with a collection that carried through some of the broad-shouldered, cinched suiting of his ready-to-wear collection, rendered this season in velvet, combined with plenty of sequins at play on gowns that showcased his signature glitz and glam.
Anticipating a return to IRL shows this season, Vauthier designed this collection with movement in mind. “I was really contemplative during the last 24 months. I looked at history and after a heavy moment like this there is an explosion of energy,” he said, noting he took inspiration from the art, architecture, and fashion of the Roaring ’20s in Paris and Berlin.
Vauthier played with that softer silhouette and the experiment worked out well. Fluid, drop-waist dresses with plenty of diaphanous layers had a lightness, offset by more modern touches including his favorite Swarovski-studded slouchy boots.
To keep the collection from feeling too precious, Vauthier wanted to escape the traditional gilded Haussmanian halls of central Paris and add a New York grit. Shown against the stripped cement walls of a former fallout shelter and backed with thumping music that was capital L loud, there was little risk of that. A head-to-toe leopard look was a standout. High-necked minidresses with exaggerated puff sleeves had a harder edge and skin-tight dresses with hip cutouts made it clear he hadn’t lost his rock ‘n’ roll roots.
The recent collection of Alexandre Vauthier Spring/ Summer 2023 Haute Couture season is nothing short of spectacular. While a few brands are using the Roaring Twenties as a major inspiration point for this season’s styles, Vauthier proves that his draped silhouettes, tailored suits, and beaded gowns take the couture cake.
