Official Paris Maison du Couture Alexis Mabille Shows Spring 2013 Haute Couture
Alexis Mabille is now an official Paris couture house. He celebrated by creating a venue in bubble gum pink that will match up with the frothy designs he sent down the runway. The show opened with a sheer pink chiffon blouse that had white sleeves and a pink peplum that was quite a froufrou paired with narrow pink razimir pants.
There was netting throughout from a white flirty cocktail dress layered in a dotted veil to a couple of dresses that had curtain like Neoprine mesh that were sweeping the floor. Some of the dresses had some bows and flowers on the shoulders that were just not the right touches.
The only look that was the strongest was a black belted tuxedo dress that was cut away in the front that revealed plenty of leg. Why couldn't Mabille create more looks like that?
I do like Alexis Mabille's sense of whimsy but this time it made me raise an eyebrow and made me go through his collection fast!
