Alexis Mabille brings a fairytale touch to haute couture
Jul 6, 2016
The French fashion designer unveiled an autumn/winter 2016-2017 haute couture collection in Paris, Tuesday, July 5, with the theme "Pastel Vibrations." Alexis Mabille brought a fairytale touch to this soft and romantic color palette, showing a line-up of princess-worthy gowns and ensembles.
Then came the march of the princesses, with ball gowns each as spectacular and voluminous as the next. There was a striking dress with a full skirt of layered tulle plumetis worn over a pearl satin corset, and a big golden-toned strapless dress with bows at the pockets. This creation, in particular, grabbed the attention of guests and followers on the internet, who compared it to Belle's ball gown in "Beauty and the Beast."
As a climax to this ode to femininity, Alexis Mabille chose not to close the show with a gown, as everyone no doubt expected. Instead, the designer revealed a pair of highly feminine pants in a crystalline, sheer fabric, matched with a voluminous platinum and gold cape tied around the back.
