Alexandre Vauthier FW2011
A woman in red is always a challenge. The entirely red collection, with a creamy finale as the only exception, is a precedent.
The “Rouge Baiser”, a crimson kiss of the great illustrator of the last century and a big friend of Christian Dior, René Gruau, served as a starting point to create the fall-winter collection Alexandre Vauthier. The designer also paid tribute to the King of red, who brought this colour to the status of a synonym to luxury – maestro Valentino.
Variations of blood red: from a bright, arterial blood to thick and dark, venous one.
A variety of forms: sharp, geometric silhouettes, softened by a sloping line of sleeves, go side by side with décolleté asymmetry; deep V-neck of a structured jacket is combined with the most laconic leggings.
The designer’s signature is recognizable in side slits, unbarring the hip, and a broad combo with wide pleats of the hood and a long fox bolero, enhancing the overall effect.
This ultra-feminine, sensual, passionate, brought to the extreme collection is ideal for a bright, confident seductress.
