The Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2018 collection is all about the ‘80s dominated Paris Fashion Week with the designer’s hero dress silhouette—short and cinched, with statement shoulders and a sleeve—makes the trend easy to embrace. Don’t miss the diamanté-buckled stilettos designed in collaboration with Amina Muaddi.
Not only did Vauthier make sure Hadid stands out on his haute couture runway, he managed to woo her for these ready-to-wear images. In her, he has found the ideal embodiment of youthful, high-octane glamour—the type of muse who can wear a sparkly purple draped minidress as naturally as a T-shirt.
This season’s lineup echoed Vauthier’s couture offering from January using couture’s key color statements—ruby red, violet, and English green—as a springboard for velvet down-filled jackets, crystal-buttoned blazers, denim, animal-stripe sequined numbers, and metallic stiletto boots. These fleshed-out tonal groupings offered a nicely conceptual twist to his usual approach. His crystal-studded jeans were back and with the finely constructed Spencer jacket or big-sleeved blouse in black.
The designer also threw in a few casual items like a satin sweatshirt and velvet tracksuit for those clients
This Fall collection also features the back-to-the-future eyewear collection Vauthier launched in a collaboration with Alain Mikli.
