10 seasons in the firmament: Swarovski x Alexandre Vauthier
Ritz Paris23.01.2017 #fashion
The Grand Palais sparkled with a thousand lights when Bella Hadid set off on the raised mirror podium of Alexandre Vauthier’s spring/summer 2017 fashion show. For this tenth season of collaboration with Swarovski, the French designer has decided in these miles of luxurious fabrics, playing with the codes of couture to refresh them better. Infused with an Eighties spirit, his ultra-sexy, sporty silhouettes followed in the footsteps of Bella, Anna Selezneva and Kendall Jenner, more Studio 54 than a stinking salon. Denim shorts, crystallized oversized sweaters, draped bustiers or mini-dresses, reminders of modernity were not lacking in this proposal. Asymmetries here or a leg sleeve there have added to this impression of dynamism. And to celebrate this anniversary with dignity, an exceptional dress was created, as a symbol of the alliance between these two skills. The evening continued at the Ritz, where the couturier and his sparkling accomplice welcomed their friends, including actress and singer Cécile Cassel, hair artist John Nollet, perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, Babeth Djian and photographer-director Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
