For his second couture collection, Vauthier improved on what’s becoming his signature: sculpted pagoda shoulders, which bear the mark of his onetime employer Thierry Mugler. Vauthier’s well-executed, dress-centric lineup drew applause and offered tough glamour via thigh-high slits, plunging necklines and Swarovski sparkles, recalling the glamorous years of Halston in New York. Futuristic power dressing came through via draped, figure-hugging skirts, pants, dresses and jumpsuits. With a palette limited to just two colors, clinical white and greige, the designer, however, may have been too minimal in his approach.
