Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Fall 2009PARIS, Jul 8, 2009 / FW/ — Simply entitled ‘Acte II’, Alexandre Vauthier unveiled his second couture collection at the Espace Commines to an enthusiastic crowd of fans and supporters.

One of the several names who are showing off-calendar this season, (that quite frankly in my opinion should have been in the official calendar), Alexandre Vauthier sent out a collection that as his very short press notes said, ‘a focus on the essential and without any artifice.’

And that for the most part if very true because the clothes are almost without embellishments with the silhouettes saying it all. Exaggerated shoulders that are reminiscent of Martin Margiela, folding, draping and ruche are the elements that when put together made this collection unique.
