Instead of the full review I’ve already posted for Christian Dior, Georges Hobeika, and Giambattista Valli I am going to give you all the abbreviated thoughts and a wish list for some of my other favorite collections from the Fall 2020 Couture collections. I was so happy to see new collection presented even if they weren’t runway shows or if there isn’t any promise of seeing these collections on the red carpet. Alexandre Vauthier is always one of my favorite shows during couture. He knows how to balance extravagance with wearability and that was definitely still the case with his lockdown couture collection. As lockdown lifted, Alexandre Vauthier moved his entire operation into an airy, modernized Haussmannian duplex in a quiet little street next to the Palais Galliera, the fashion museum of the city of Paris. In a showroom meeting with Vogue Runway’s Tina Issac-Goize he told her that business was almost “back to normal.” This is a sign of hope for me that fashion will be back on top of its game by the September show season. In this collection you saw Vauthier’s history having worked at Thierry Mugler under the name sake designer in his prime on full display. The inspiration for the looks ranged from the heyday of old Hollywood Glamour to the decadence of the 1980’s. I could see some of the iconic 80’s designers like Yves St Laurent, Zandra Rhodes, Roberto Capucci, and of course Thierry Mugler on the mood board for this collection along with icons like Joan Crawford, Olivia de Havilland, Elizabeth Taylor, and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Vauthier dresses some of the hottest women in the world and one of the things I love most about the designer is that even though sex appeal is a main ingredient in his collections the age ranges of stars who I can picture wearing the collection is wide ranging. So check out just a couple of my initial wishes for whom I would love to see bring this collection to life on the red carpet as we start coming out of lockdown and bringing back the glamour.
