Alexandre Vauthier's Couture collection features sprinkles for crystal sparkle like a night with a sky full of stars.

Paris via Nevada was the jazzy turn the designer took for the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2021 Haute Couture collection.
He said, “The collection being monochrome is a parti pris, black is an excessively Parisian code. It’s also a sort of a metaphor of a clean slate from where to start anew after all we’ve been through.”
The lineup featured Folies Bergère–Las Vegas vibe punctuated by dramatic crystal fringed and feathered ponchos, Lesage-embroidered black leather perfectos worn over sequined bodysuits, and see-through pleated chiffon capes veiling crystal-embellished bikinis. A black-feathered, punky head-to-toe headdress fit for Le Lido was worn with a sweetheart-neckline, barely-there leather minidress, fringed with the help of Lemarié, while a heart-shaped feathered fluff of a dress was accessorized by a see-through plumetis catsuit and a pair of cowboy boots treated to couture therapy, studded and embellished with abundant crystal intricacies.
He introduced a few sharp-tailored options to offset the collection’s exuberance, among them a nonchalant three-piece tennis-striped suit with high-waisted wide trousers and a belted trench coat with an undulating storm flap. Impeccably made as they were, they nevertheless exuded the sexy je ne sais quoi that is a Vauthier signature.
“I’ve worked the collection focusing on the most amazing couture techniques,” said Alexandre Vauthier.
