“[Couture] is the moment where we have to show what we do best in France,” said Alexandre Vauthier of his Summer 2020 Couture collection. Playing with all sorts of volume and shapes, Vauthier embraced the freedom that comes with designing Haute Couture; in this art/fashion form of extravaganza and excess, there’s a lot more room to be grand and excessive.
For Spring Haute Couture 2020, Vauthier created an assemblage of disparate personalities with his looks: dapper striped suits for the more modest (but still chic) woman, sequin dresses slashed along the legs for the party gals, and dresses so voluminous they are reminiscent of wedding cakes. Speaking of cakes, the cherry on top was brought to us by Phillip Treacy – whose infamous hats are as famous as royalty. Heads were adorned with Treacy’s sky-high feathers and abstract shapes balanced over berets.
