Last night, Alain Mikli and Alexandre Vauthier celebrated the launch of their collaboration at Penthouse on Rivington. The evening, hosted Mikli's Creative Director Giampiero Tagliaferri and Mr. Vauthier, saw appearances by the likes of Emily Weiss, Joan Smalls, Lily Aldridge, Mel Ottenberg, Michelle Harper, Rita Ora, Ruby Aldridge, Tom Van Dorpe, Vanessa Moody, and more.

Regarding the creation behind this 80s inspired collaboration, Vauthier says, “I wanted to create a very distinctive selection of eyewear that felt like a natural extension of my collection and also which complements the confident personalities of the Alexandre Vauthier woman.  The women who wear my collections around the world are both sensual and powerful and this collaboration with Alain Mikli was made for these bold and inspiring women." 

Tagliaferri says, "Both brands are quintessential Parisian and share the same values and aesthetic. We combined Mikli’s distinctive and provocative approach to design with Vauthier's powerful vision of a sexy yet sophisticated woman. The fierce styling of both brands exudes strength, power and femininity making this collaboration a perfect fit.” And indeed, this collaboration is nothing short of perfect. The collection is available starting today for pre-sale at Barneys.com, Alain Mikli NYC, and Alain Mikli Paris Boutiques.
