Beginning his career at Thierry Mugler and working for Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexandre Vauthier had acquired considerable skill and understanding of luxury fashion, before setting up his eponymous line in 2009. The French designer professes his dedication to precision and producing only the most rigorous cuts, which result in couture-like silhouettes at ready-to-wear availability.
With exceptional tailoring at the forefront of Alexandre Vauthier designs, each piece is a stunning representation of this principle. The aesthetic is one of luxurious glamour, combined with an urban edge which makes Vauthier pieces modern and inescapably eye-catching. An enmeshment of French sophistication, with contemporary flair, Alexandre Vauthier designs are head turning. Dramatic details are classic to the brand, with sharply tailored shoulders, asymmetric shapes and daring cut-outs. The drama is accentuated by rich colour palettes of blacks, golds and bold jewel tones. The most opulent fabrics are used, with crushed velvet cocktail dresses and elegant satin evening dresses gracing the collections. Floor length gowns with plunging necklines and expert draping are met with halterneck mini dresses in from-flattering shapes.
While Alexandre Vauthier are known for their alluring occasionwear, the brand also creates pieces which can be added to any wardrobe. Beautifully tailored trousers, sculpted jackets and leather skirts will add a hint of glamour to any outfit. Their footwear ranges from suede knee-high boots, to embellished satin heels in the most vibrant of shades.
Alexandre Vauthier collections can be found online through retailers including Farfetch, Matches Fashion and Harrods.
