Alexis Mabille Couture Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection

Elegance is made for Alexis Mabille. Elegance and sophistication. We are blown away by the sheer beauty of the pieces presented in the Alexis Mabille Couture fall/winter 2015-2016 collection, with the corsets and the flowing gowns showing off the perfection of the models’ bodies from the get go. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the designer as a couturier, with the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres distinction decoration being bestowed on Mabille but two weeks back by French Minister of Culture, Fleur Pellerin. There is just something too special about the way these designs are shown off, the 2015-2016 series possibly one of the best he has yet to give the world.

Femininity is what he does. Alexis Mabille has a tendency to take the incredible and turn it into something even more marvellous, due to his keen eye and lack of discrimination. That latter point is seen easily in the reveal of his couture collection when we notice older women showing off some of the lovelies pieces created to date, high waists on those paillettes adorned skirts and all, combined with the plunging neckline on stiff lace and ribbon endowed shirt. You’ve got curvy women and stick thin ones, mothers shown off with their bare bottomed children and ladies to star in the next Desperate Housewives episode.

We have to admit that never in our lives have we been so fond of ribbons as we are now, seeing them appearing in huge length all over the collection. There is even a possible wedding dress in there or 2 or 3, since we certainly love the strapless pieces with embroidered chiffon overcoats along with the body skimming numbers with the flowing skirts beginning from just under the hips and bottom. A similar dress appeared in red, with half sleeves and open lapels, showing off the body with much aplomb. Even pregnancy can be celebrated in style, with gorgeous golden heels and a goddess’ dress to boot. Graceful cape sleeves and wraparound dresses make the Alexis Mabille Couture fall 2015 collection even more sumptuous, truly one that we cannot imagine living without.

What is possibly the most amusing aspect of this collection is the fact that each piece was made with a muse and buyer in mind. Dita Von Teese has for herself an alluring emerald green jersey and duchesse satin corseted gown made, with distinctive embroidery on the scarf thrown over the shoulder. Mounia Orosmane, on the other hand, has been fitted with an inky blue taffeta shirtdress with metallic lace inserts. This is one which is more fitting for ready to wear and accessible to the general public. Between the bows, the crystals, the pearl lattice overlays and incredible beaded fringes, the painted silk flowers and individualistic approach, there was no way a person could not be positively seduced with the whole of the collection that was slightly disjointed but always also in cohesive line. The dress wore the women and not the other way around.
