Alexis Mabille " Sunkissed "

One of the most anticipated shows of the week is from the young French couturier Alexis Mabille. After receiving his diploma from Paris' Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in 1997, the designer who grew up in the city of Lyon, undertook apprenticeships at Ungaro and Nina Ricci fashion houses, before joining the team at Christian Dior with whom he stayed for nine years. During his time at Dior he created exquisite fine jewelry for John Galliano, as well as the Dior Homme line overseen by Heidi Slimane.

For spring-summer 2011, the Alexis Mabille woman embraces uncomplicated chic. The designer has composed a wardrobe of pieces that can be mixed and matched. Precise cuts are inspired by the lightning used by the late Irving Penn. Cotton and linen go anywhere. Jersey and silk soften leather and denim. A series of Raoul Dufy prints conjure a carefree, promising era. The ultra-feminine silhouette is adapted to an active, contemporary lifestyle, with an accent on dresses, jackets, pants, and jeans that are easy to wear. A beautiful collection with refreshing and dynamic clothes.
