The brand

In 2008 he founded his couture house and made his debut in Paris in 2009 during Paris Fashion Week. From now on, Christian Louboutin will start designing all the shoes for the Vauthier fashion shows. An army of Amazons poured onto the catwalk, strong and sensual women dressed in dark gray dresses with a radical but sober cut. His natural need for precision and rigor and his radical cuts are expressed through a style inspired by his French culture and his Anglo-Saxon influences. Already from the first collection, Vauthier is not afraid to push luxury to the limit:

giant furs, transparent tops, draped and provocative dresses with open backs and plunging necklines.
