Playful Silhouettes Take Shape in ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER Ready-To-Wear

The Fall/Winter 2023 collection is a curation of the exaggerated and the daring

Expanding upon his ’80s-inspired January collection, Alexandre Vauthier’s ready-to-wear plays with similar shapes: engulfing furs, playful cutouts, bouncing tulles, and larger-than-life ruffles. Shot by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Emmanuelle Alt, the lookbook juxtaposes the daring designs of the Fall/Winter collection against an earthy landscape, creating a portrait in which high fashion looks surprisingly at home while sitting amongst the soil, tall grass and rock. 

Known for his instantly recognizable silhouettes, Alexandre Vauthier continues this legacy with this collection, focusing on the styles that are defining the brand as radical and inventive. While massive faux fur outerwear in both bright and neutral colors grab the eyes, embellished and coordinating denim and leather ensembles show that the adaption of the decade’s dramatic aesthetic can still be wearable.  Slouchy silver boots with a pointed toe similarly reference the era with an updated touch. 

Mini dresses are the most intriguing items of the collection, including neon pink tulle styles as well as designs with exaggerated ruffle hems. A long sleeve option, complete with a polka dot version of the hem and strong padded shoulders, offers a more traditional take on the look, while a similar design features full body cutouts, exposed arms, fluffy layers of ruffles and a bow detailing. Another option composed of sharp silver shapes also stuns, perhaps a play on the decade’s affinity for geometric designs. 

While simultaneously a reference to fashion’s past and its future, Alexandre Vauthier brings his amplified visions to life, once again constructing a collection that is daring yet versatile.
