Alexandre Vauthier is one of those sexy French fashion designers that are always inspired by the 1980s. But for his Spring 2019 haute couture show, he referenced a different decade, slightly older, but sensual and seductive nevertheless. It was the 1960s, a time when fashion first witness the mini-skirt and women got better tastes of menswear-style tailoring. This season, both aesthetics were on full display, complete with micro pouf cocktail dresses with decorative bows, miles and miles of ruffles on different parts of the body, and a few hints of animal print for equal measure. Though the overall style was the same—unapologetically sexy and fiercely confident—there was something quite new with this latest offering. That something might be the androgynous tailoring, similar to Françoise Hardy (French singer and style icon), which gave it a more contemporary kick. While the A-list red carpet stars will drool all over the leg-baring mini-dresses, other couture clients, those whose lives aren’t put on display, will likely gravitate more towards the sophisticated-tailored looks.
