French couturier, Alexandre Vaulthier is in his element when it comes to haute couture. In his own words, “Couture [is] a way of working with the métiers d’art. It’s the moment where we have to show what we do best in France.” He displayed this with a Spring 2020 Haute Couture collection that is not short on time-consuming intricacies and details that still look, true to the French way, effortless. Fabrics are tiered and stitched to create 3D floral patterns, while other garments showcase masterful pleating and draping. Elements from the 80s such as shoulder pads, ruffles and voluminous minidresses were also noticeable in the pieces that walked the runway.
Though not as cohesive as some of the collections that showed during Haute Couture week, the collection is grounded with black pieces and an emphasis on volume. For instance, billowing harem pants and full, flared skirts.
