Unveiled at Paris Haute Couture Week, the Alexis Mabille Spring-Summer 2024 Collection, titled “Mirror, Mirror,” stands as a jewel of haute couture’s transformative essence. On January 23rd, 2024, in the grandeur of Paris, Mabille presented a collection that mirrors the intricate relationship between couture’s sophistication and the personal journey of self-expression.
A Palette of Poetic Hues
Departing from his characteristic bright jewel tones, Mabille embraced a more subdued yet impactful color palette, featuring ivory, ballet pink, beige, moiré bronze, and brown. These hues, enriched with dramatic touches of black and red, serve as a canvas for Mabille’s artful embellishments, including tone-on-tone embroideries, sequins, and his iconic giant bows.
The Architectural Elegance of Design
The collection showcases Mabille’s mastery in blending architectural precision with the fluidity of fashion. Key pieces include:
- A tuxedo dress in white crepe, inlaid with Lyon lace and detailed with satin facings and mother-of-pearl buttons, exemplifying the harmony of classic elegance and contemporary sensibility.
- Bustier tuxedo dresses adorned with Lyon lace, crystals, and pearl embellishments, reflecting a luxurious texture and luminescence.
Femininity in Every Detail
Alexis Mabille’s collection is a narrative of femininity, where each garment tells its own story. The architectural gowns, marked by their precision and dramatic draping, embrace the female form with elegance and grace. The addition of asymmetrical necklines, puff sleeves, and lace incrustations introduces a romantic and whimsical flavor to the collection.
A Spectrum of Feminine Identities
“Mirror, Mirror” is a collection of diverse feminine expression. From the power-infused elegance of tuxedo dresses to the seductive allure of flowing negligées, Mabille captures the myriad facets of femininity with a confident touch of whimsy.
