Alexandre Vauthier Couture Spring 2014
I’m really impressed with Alexandre Vauthier’s Haute Couture Spring 2014 collection. Braided leather added edge and texture to his body-hugging looks, while macramé tops and dresses — some were entirely knotted from hand-woven ropes — gave off an ethnic flair. Vauthier also experimented with sisal; the lightweight, malleable fabric helped him work undulating shapes on short ruffled dresses. More straightforward were looks done in a new Neoprenelike fabric made from waxed jersey. So light, it gave a stone-embroidered varsity jacket a shirtlike quality. Vauthier paired it with a white poplin shirtdress to great effect.
There’s alot of sex appeal, edginess and baring of skin. He even has some rather risqué see-through jumpsuits! I think he celebrates the female form so perfectly. And, it’s not hard to imagine yourself in his creations. Just inspires you to let your inner sexy diva out! So, I’ve compiled a few of my favourite looks from his collection. Enjoy!
