Haute Couture : Alexis Mabille : Spring 2012 Collection

Good Monday Morning ❤


Alexis Mabille

and if you’re not clued up on who they are in the haute couture world, an official guest member for the spring/summer 2012 fashion week in Paris.

This collection was show cased on Monday….

Alexis Mabille’s inspiration was

“It is only women who do not know how to dress that are afraid of colors” 

and later explained that the collection was also inspired by a photograph of iconic model Lisa Fonssagrives on a beach, her face suffused with pink from the sunlight coming through her umbrella.

The beautiful models on the catwalk were : Emilia Nawarecka , Katlin Aas , Kamila Filipcikova, Caterina Ravaglia, Linnea Regnander, Eugenia Mandzhieva, Thana Kuhnen , Pauline van der Cruysse, Shena Moulton, Alana Bunte , Anais Pouliot, Kelli Lumi, Karo Mrozkova, So Young Kang, Tilda Lindstam ,Simona Andrejic and Antonia Wesseloh.

Each item of clothing, as I can only imagine you just saw from my collection of images from the show above, was monochrome. Alexis Mabille was really making the c0lour blocking statement as bold as he possibly could, and as such each models face was painted the same shade as the giant piece of tissue paper mounted to her head. I must be honest, upon first looking at these images – I hated them. The idea has started to grown on me and I can see some light at the end of the tunnel for the collection, however a lot of the critics haven’t.

Fashion critics have questioned Alexis Mabille’s quality of the couture he produced for this years Fashion Week, in comparasion to the grand masters.

A penny for your thoughts Pouters?
