Alexis Mabille made a giant splash last year with his bowtie and bow collection and now, in his third couture season, he shows us that he’s no one hit wonder. The bows are still the designer’s signature, but in his capable hands they don’t look tired or juvenile. Mabille continues to make wonderous concoctions with his bows that I simply can’t get enough of.
It’s refreshing to see a fresh, young face in the Couture world. Many of the couture houses have been showing for decades, and as the new kid on the block, Mabille is definitely holding his ground. His silhouettes were made up of very expensive fabrics that made the wearer look “easy, breezy” but put together at the same time. From structured cocktail dresses, to languid jumpsuits, hooded blazers to evening gowns, the collection was simple, sophisticated, and most importantly, looked like it would be really comfortable and fun to wear.
Sheerness and lace, popular on many of the runways for fall, were a big part of the collection. Mabille’s palette included lots of black and white with hits of pastels and greys. His bows were ever-present adorning everything from hair, evening gowns and as evening clutches (including a black sequined one!). View the gallery to check out this French rising stars collection.
