Alexis Mabille Couture Collection F/W 2012-2013

I have to thank Vogue once again for bringing me such beauty in the morning. This time around, I am sharing with you the Alexis Mabille collection that blew me away. I loved the whole vibe and the energy behind each piece. While most of the collect felt very strong and constructed…there were some pieces that were the complete opposite…especially those in the soft pale colors. From heavy velvets to almost sheer silks…this collection demonstrated the designer’s ability to take any fabric and create fluid movements and elegant lines. In my opinion, the woman he had in mind when designing this collection  is definitely strong and confident. She can walk into any room and effortlessly command the attention of everyone. She is not afraid of her power and “damsel in distress” is not a role she’d ever play. She’s hardly classified as sweet, but always thought of as seductive. For me, that is the impression I got from this collection. The makeup was pale with very prominent red lips and the hair was slick, chic and high…which I thought was perfectly in tune with the show. Pure creativity.
Here I will leave you with some of my favorites looks from yesterday’s show.

And honestly…I love that last picture of him as he took the stage…any man with that kind of sense of personal style is definitely okay in my book!XOXO,

    This was my favorite collection so far. I also learned about him just this year but my friends in Paris all know him because of his accessory collection. It may be something you might like to research. I am not sure if he still has it or not.
