The couturier channeled Studio 54 glamour for the after-dark focused collection

“Couture can be a bit ceremonial and serious but you can have fun. It’s a question of attitude,” said Alexandre Vauthier, who channeled retro glamour à la Studio 54, with giant disco balls hanging over the runway and hot pink lights accentuating the line’s after-dark mood. Transparency and glitter were among the leitmotifs.

Ready to hit the dance floor was a black crystal-and-lace jumpsuit cinched with a baby pink metallic belt, wrap dresses in pastel metallics or glossy black python and a springy black-and-white organza polka-dot mini.

The accessories included metallic footwear, veiled hats and supersized asymmetric crystal chandelier earrings straight out of the Eighties. Vauthier also revisited Le Smoking with a short wide pant with a high split, accessorized with metallic boots. But it was the quieter moments like the ultradelicate organza tops with expertly sculpted ruffles that sang.
