Jewellery features heavily in the showy new Spring Summer 2014 collection from Alexandre Vauthier, shown at Paris Haute Couture week in the Palais des Beaux Arts overlooking the Seine.
Just a stone’s throw from the bridge of padlocks, covered in chunky gold and purple tokens of affection, Vauthier unveiled golden spikes, chains, ankle cuffs, zips and bracelets to the assembled fashion crowd. The shiny array contributed towards a raunchy showbiz spectacular, highlighted by pop concert style lighting.
Rihanna and Rita Ora have already worn some of the outfits from the show, just five days after they were unveiled to the press and fashion buyers. The collection included sheer jumpsuits, knitted dresses, flowing silk gowns straight from the silver screen and architectural pieces which emulated sound waves encapsulated for the wardrobe.
Rihanna chose a flowing golden gown and Rita Ora opted for a short white bejewelled dress with matching jacket. Rihanna was attending a Pre-GRAMMY Gala at the 56th annual GRAMMY Awards. Rita Ora wore her Lesage embroidered belt and a neoprène embroidered Lesage blouson to the Roc Nation Grammy Brunch.
