Vauthier gave the collection a rather seductive syncopated rhythm, playing over-the-top showstoppers shimmering with metallic silver sequins against strong suits of the strong oversized variety.
“I wanted something extremely radical, very clean, électrique,” he offered, “something unilateral in its vocabulary.”
Cue the reduced palette of stark black, a twisted-bourgeois shade of beige, a few shots of Yves Klein blue, and glimmers of silver, which let his mastery of cut and draping do the talking. The silhouettes alternated between sleek, slinky, and body-con, with revealing drapings stopping short of being overtly provocative, alongside trapeze or fluted asymmetrical shapes. Plays of frothy feathers and loose plissé panels added a further sensuous note to the already rather hot mix.
