Alexandre Vauthier, the couturier known for dressing Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Caroline Vreeland in addition to a host of other cool girls just presented his Spring 2018 couture collection. Staying true to the designer’s aesthetic, the draped minidresses, ruffled tops and skintight pants felt like they were made for the bold celebrity styles plates of the world. Below, our show notes on the collection.

Memorable piece — 

Look 10, a piece with a supersized, metallic tartan print bow.


Remarkable design —

The purple chiffon poof-like dress (Look 4) styled with black wet-look thigh high boots.


Best accessory —

Hands down, the crystal embellished eyewear designed in collaboration with French eyewear brand Alain Mikli. The frames take inspiration from the aesthetics of fashion photographers Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin.

Model standout —

Bella Hadid, who closed the show wearing a glamorous forest green robe, ankle-strap heels and a pair of the aforementioned crystal studded glasses.


Collection inspiration —

Continuing last season’s link to the fabulosity of the ‘80s, Alexandre Vauthier dove deep into the fashions of the New Wave and Romantic Era. 


Potential trends —

Vauthier’s pieces are timeless for a certain clientele—mini dresses, bold silk numbers with giant shoulders and oversized, sexy overwear made for a nightclub. On the trend front, think pirate-style blouses and cropped pants, or one of the ornate hats.

Location —

Per usual, the show was held inside the Grand Palais, with bold blue lighting that matched the overall vibe of the collection.
