Paris, France – For Spring/Summer 2015, Alexis Mabille is doing interesting things for the modern couture client. He creates for the woman of near unlimited financial means and who wants to be active, energetic and elegant. Though to the less experienced eye, some looks may seem to be out of step with the majority of the collection. This unfortunately may result some believing that the collection appears to be a bit all over the place.
The sequined looks are of course the most exciting looks in the collection. Mabille uses them to create three spectacular looks. The first is a tight-fitting buster gown in petrol blue; a corset string bustier gown with open flaps that recall of lapels; and long sleeved black gown with white embellishments at the shoulders and back. Though the hot pink jumpsuit is one of the elements that does not reflect the overall tone of the collection, its lapels do recall do make the case of the unison that defines the overall spirit.
Yes it is true that the black gowns with large floral prints are exquisite. However, they pale in comparison to some of the other gowns such as the one in white which is draped at the hip and which has with a bow and finished with the long cape; the emerald green one shoulder gown with draped waist; the sheath gown in purple with corseted bustier and single large lapel; and the final gown. This last is a sheath gown with a giant bow of unbelievable fantasy dimensions!
