Graphics and color blocking…

Graphics and color blocking…

Kicking off the couture season is young couturier Alexis Mabille.

While he may not be the most well-known couturier, his carefully crafted garments have already been worn by France’s first lady Carla Bruni, Dita von Teese (who was seated front row at the show wearing a deep cut Alexis Mabille little black dress under a black fox fur coat), and Keira Knightley, among others.

This season, the designer, who showed his collection in a garage on the rue de Turenne (a la Christian Lacroix), played with graphics and color blocking that was somewhat reminiscent of the Fall 2009 Pantone-inspired Henry Holland collection. In fact, a number of the pieces – given how much skin they covered – seemed more Fall/Winter than Spring/Summer.

In addition to slicing a number of his garments right down the middle into two color blocked segments (paired with mismatched shoes and color blocked hair – again very much like what Henry Holland showed), the designer brought out his signature bows, most notably in a little black dress lined with yellow bows, as well as a play on cut-out details via a little black dress with oval, flesh colored sides and inner arm cut-outs.

However, it was the two strapless cocktail numbers shown towards the end, with their carefully pleated tops and fitted-to-a-tee bodices, that were the most remarkable.

  1. I dont really know what youre talking about here. This cant be the only way to think about this can it? It seems like you know a lot about the subject, so why not explore it more? Make it more accessible to everyone else who may not agree with you? Youd get a lot more people behind this if you just stopped making general statements.
