Strong, Powerful and Sexy! For Couture Week in Paris Alexandre Vauthier presented a very Parisienne polished collection. His suits are sensational, the animal prints give vigor, the ruffles are gargantuan, and there are sequins in neon green and accentuated shoulders. The sleeves are enormous, round, ruffled or draped. There is constriction and structure, and play with shapes and forms. It is moving from polished sharp toward a wilder bloom. It is authoritative and playfully seductive.


The show opened with a mini balloon black and white bow  minidress followed by a perfectly tailored three piece suit worn with white shirt and black scarf tie, balloon skirts, embroidered and sparkling jackets, shiny leather coats, explosions of mini flower dresses.  A dusty pink suit suggested a sixties inspiration , a maxi ruffled animal print dress, black tulle blouses matched with pants and shorts with a round white jacket with those balloon boots. Francois Hardy playing in the back filling the air with that avantgarde Parisienne flair.


The colors varied from dusty pink lightly embroidered, neon green with sparkles, animal print, black and white, silver, pale yellow, white, polka dot and sequined. The shapes were contrasting.  There was structure in the ruffles, they were all over taking over the dress, whether in light pink, printed white or animal print. The specific cut of the jackets was modern and very Parisienne indeed. Parisienne style is one of sophistications, a subtle femininity, and boldness.
