A Game of Sequins at Alexis Mabille Fall 2016 RTW

There is something quite lovely about the Alexis Mabille fall/winter 2016-2017 collection that features dark colored ready-to-wear designs perfect for a woman who values both her down time and that which is spent at work. It is an urban chic the Lyons born Parisian designer is going for, with slinky feline style on his 38-year-old brain. The handsome young man has much going for him and his impeccable creations are only a part of it.

Alexis Mabille Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

For the Paris Fashion Week, he mentioned something that has us thinking: “I like the idea that a wardrobe is plural.” Truth be told, few would think of it as such, but that is what makes the designer so powerful in his world. He designs for different wardrobes but ultimately the same person. As an individual is multi-faceted, this makes perfect sense. Furthermore, the collection was inspired by his own wife, who has a tendency to be both frivolous and active, contemporary yet sensual all at the same time. The collection is entitled “Life is a catwalk” and the humor is not lost to us. It is like Shakespeare saying that life is but a play and we are all the characters in it.

Here, Mabille mixes sensuality and sportswear, an urban chic with a suburban comfort. The cat kiss dress is a favorite, while those jogging pants raise brows and the robe style coat in Parisian style rose is simply too lovely to let up. The silhouettes are said to be a combination of the feminine Katharine Hepburn, the sweet Dia Von Teese, and the casual Chloe Sevigny, pulled together to create something truly divine.

Trends are obviously important to follow and the designer hopes to make his collections into fun impulse purchases that make one feel really good about herself. From darker navy colorings to a few really bright pieces, including cherry red, plush pink and ore, we see everything from high waists to knee length shorts, silk blouses and floral print looks, lovely coats and bright red boots, lots of stripes and a general consensus that legs only be shown while wearing panty hose. With 32 outfits and ensembles to look through, we have a beautiful urban woman’s collection to sort and pick our favorites from.

We should probably comment on the beauty looks as well, starting from the hair. It appears that low lights are totally in, kept to the inside porting of the hair and kind of appearing like a satin lining to a coat. The bluish coloring looks especially interesting on black hair, but the chestnut is no less striking in its appearance. Whether the hair is cut midi length or worn a touch longer to the tops of the breasts, with bangs or without, the looks are undeniably lovely. The hair is generally parted from the center and falls straight around the shoulders. The lips are a lovely red color, the cheekbones accentuated with shadings, and the brows prominent. The ladies are indeed gorgeous!
