Can you believe its July already? Time really does fly by so quickly. One minute you are gearing up for the scorching weather change. The next, you see Fall creeping its way up with a pretty forecast. I don’t know about you. But I absolutely adore Winter clothing. Something about a nice coat, jumper, and those tall boots that have us craving for more. I am kind of relieved that summer is over. Not that I don’t enjoy it, I just prefer the Fall fashions especially, when being Parisian chic is in order.

To get us ready for Fall, I have for you a beautiful treat. The couture collections are in, and one designer in particular really caught my attention. By early evening, Alexandre Vauthier created a private club-type setting through which the models strutted by wearing thickly belted tailleurs, slinky crystal-studded dresses, and pheasant-feathered frocks. Think 80s femme fatale with an elegant touch.
Vauthier’s line showcased Parisian glamour, while shouting from the roof tops “We love celebrating femininity and every woman’s right to always be glamourous.”
Women are strong and we have been through a lot in our lives, whether it is working hard for that next promotion or trying to just get through a workout routine without falling on our faces.
One thing that this couture line has captivated is highlighting silky, bejewelled, and bright fabrics that really have our inner divas taking note. You can take a tailored silk jacket, or flowing mysterious classic dress and really work it into your wardrobe for a flashy result.

Investment pieces are practical and in this collection, there was ample black trousers- a look that many French editors are adopting, the little black dresses delicately inlaid with lace, and also the close-cropped black jacket with its sharp white double collar and crystal-covered placket.
On the spellbound end of the spectrum were gowns fully covered in tiger embroideries, a tiered dress that made you feel like Prince’s song hot thing, was about to scream from the loudspeakers. The look alone felt like a nod to a super chic 80s vibe that I honestly can’t get enough of. You don’t have to be born in the 80s, to appreciate the modern flavour the French designer is taking at mixing modernism with a hint of a flashback era.
Normally, when we take a look at a couture collection. Usually the show is over the top. Where you feel as if you couldn’t really wear this stuff in everyday life. Well in this case, that is totally wrong. One thing I noticed echoing from Alexandre’s collection, was the trendy pieces mixed in with a practical undertone. I know that feathers, or big bold statements can maybe seem a bit scary. But honesty, who are you a basic b****? If you are then please stay clear from reading this next sentence.

The zesty yellow and animal prints with big accessories, actually played into the collection’s animalistic and stylish overtones. Making it perfect for a day to night look. Can you achieve this? Absolutely. Look at the animal print dresses. They have recently become very popular and you can wear them with casual pieces from your wardrobe. Try wearing them alone with some pretty accessories for daytime. Then switch it up by rocking a leather jacket, sleeves pushed up and a pair of striking heels for date night with someone special in your life.

Using your creative head can really do wonders. When you are trying to find something unique to try out. Best part is, these pieces are not just dressy but can be worn any time of day. And you can wear them in any weather condition. You only live once in life, why not be totally glamour’s.
