ALEXANDER VAUTHIER FALL 2020 HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION
Alexandre Vauthier dreams big for the Fall Couture collection with vivid color and an edgy aesthetic.
July 13, 2020
For the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020 Haute Couture collection, the designer honed a tight yet exuberant collection with the specialized ateliers like Lemarié, Goossens, and Lesage.
“A little bit interiorized, but focused on dreams of the exterior” is how he qualified looks.
Revisited staples—a pale, spare trench with an ample back vent, a faultless black bustier dress, and several black trousers cut with laser precision—kept company with a sleeveless silk satin evening cape in blazing pink and feather-trimmed evening gowns in pink, black, or seafoam green chiffon that harked back to Hollywood’s golden era. Sequined or lavishly embroidered cropped jackets nodded to 1980s-era touchstones, as did tuxedo shorts and a gunmetal sequined hybrid carrot/sarouel pant.
Other pieces included strapless minidress in gold in Lurex velvet and a candy wrapper of a dress in hand-pleated fuchsia lamé on organza. The tiered gold lamé halter dress would be right at home on any red carpet, were those happening right now, but in any case it will keep forever, as will the black or white burnt ostrich feather chubbies.
