The popular designer Alain Mikli returns to the Alexandre Vauthier catwalk. The second eyewear collection created by the brand in collaboration with the French designer’s maison was in fact worn by some models during the last haute couture fashion show for spring-summer 2019.
The fusion between the original approach of the eyewear brand and Vauthier’s femme fatale ideal takes the form of a gritty aesthetic and the allure of the ’80s. The défilé has been the stage for customized versions of the Josseline, Ketti and Ansolet models, created in partnership with the label and declined in a personalized palette of pastel neutral nuances, decorated with Swarovski crystals.
“The launch of our first collaboration was a great success. The new collection echoes this first experience with cutting-edge frames that challenge the limits of eyewear», commented Giampiero Tagliaferri, creative director of Alain Mikli.
Protagonist of the campaign of the season, the top model of the 90s Christy Turlington, immortalized by the duo of fashion photographers Inez & Vinoodh. The capsule Alain Mikli x Alexandre Vauthier will be available on Sunglasshut.com (in North America, United Kingdom and France only) and in Alain Mikli boutiques worldwide from next March.
“For my second collaboration with Alain Mikli I have developed new shapes with softer colors,” said Alexandre Vauthier. «I wanted to give life to a declaration of Parisian style through the French essential codes, maintaining a very natural look. And it has always been my dream to work with Christy Turlington, her natural beauty shines in this campaign and the images underline the right balance between sophisticated and playful that defines the mood of this collaboration“.
