Alexandre Vauthier Couture Fall Winter 2012 Paris
Slideshow

After seeing the Alexandre Vauthier show one front row attendee commented “it’s like Charlies Angels meets Studio 54.” That’s really not a half bad description off this hyper sexy show that was chock a block with bodycon jumpsuits, mini skirt suits with sleeveless linebacker shoulder jackets finishing in peplum waists and full bodied furs outfitted with gold chain fringe.

The V (for Vauthier) was the dominate shape of the show. It defined almost every look. There was the classic deep v down the front of a tailored jacket. More interestingly it showed up cut horizontally to leave one arm exposed on an all–in-one outfit finishing in a point on a nude back or sliced out of the sides of a dress that finished in a knot of fabric at the front. A textural take came in the crusty gold bead and crystal work that embellished the façade of short dresses.

For a winter collection the colors of white, gold and beige looked a bit odd. But as no one seems to care anymore what season we are in, it didn’t detract from the well executed tailoring. The ripple effect of Angelina Jolie’s hip high red carpet slit dress could also be seen in Vauthier’s show. They not only showed up on his floor skimming gowns but mini versions also exposed skin on some already short dresses. For balance the designer also showed a high waisted pant with a tapered leg that looked like something Diana Ross would have worn in her clubbing heyday.

The collection was both well thought out and deftly executed. And the models who burned up the catwalk with their sizzling attitude and 'take no prisoners'  saunter made this show a winner.
