Spread the word: Alexandre Morgado and Matthieu Bureau, known collectively as Alexandre Matthieu, have decided that the era of angst-ridden conceptual clothing is over.

The duo propose a poppy, lighthearted aesthetic driven by a sense of feminine fun. Inspired by the '30s silhouettes of Madeleine Vionnet, Morgado and Bureau showed loose cocktail dresses embellished with starburst smatterings of paillettes. A single-button pearl-white cocktail dress came with trailing split sleeves, while a lightweight top looked as if it had been expertly airbrushed with a row of crashing waves across the shoulders. In a more contemporary vein, the duo also included sexy red leather trousers, a white bomber jacket with floral appliqués and a satin blazer cinched with a single delicate thread.
