Magenta light enhanced by a disco-ball aura bathed the upper gallery of the Grand Palais, the zigzagging runway felt more like a path to the dance floor, evoking midnight this line is sultry at best.


With this collection, Alexandre Vauthier gave every indication that he enjoyed the process of reviving the excellence and exuberance of ’80s haute couture. "The idea is take the best from the past to advance forward," he explained of his throwback glamour. So he toyed with asymmetric nipped-and-tucked volumes; treated draped colorful lamé like liquid metal; and turned necklines into grand canyons. But it wasn’t just about sexy special effects; the tuxedo jacket paired with city shorts, polka dot silk organza minidresses, and gauzy white shirts ruffled with extra flourish were simple ideas executed to peak Parisian panache and topped with a stylized fez. Vauthier put it best: "Excessivement chic." 


A rewind in time was not done better. 80's revival. Alexandre, the great. TH
