Alexis Mabille is often dressed effordlessly chic with a sporty touch. He has a very charming smile and first it doesn’t make you believe that he has his own fashion house that was presented my times at the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris. Judging by the pictures I saw of him, he seemed like a very down-to-earth kind of man, but as I looked closer I saw a strong confidence and believe in this man.
Alexis Mabille studied fashion design at the Chambre syndicale de la couture parisienne and worked later for the fashion houses Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent before founding his own housebrand which quickly became renowned for the designer’s modern rendering of the traditional bow tie.
For the Spring /Sommer 2016 Haute Couture Alexis Mabille decided to present a monochrome collection. Now only is the combination the colours black and white always super elegant, but it also reflects an opposite attract. Some of the clothes are also only in white and some in black. The designer also added dark blue and light beige in some of the dresses. Alexis Mabille even included a classic black bow tie dress in his collection. The dresses are mostly wide flowing style. He used a lot of ruffle style for the dresses and even the tight designs have ruffles on top or on the botton. Some of the dresses are even see-through, because he used very beautiful sheer materials. But they still sparkle in beautiful elegance like his whole collection.

My favorite pieces are the black caped dress, the white pleats dress, the bow tie dress and the last dress – the long caped black & white dress. It would be amazing to wear them. His dressed go up to size 14 and sometimes even size 16 (US sizes).
Thank you for the fashion house of Alexis Mabille for providing us with the amazing pictures from the show.
I truly love the beauty of fashion and I hope you like it too.
