Master Mabille

Sunday, January 30, 2011


France's stylish first lady Carla Bruni is a fan of couturier Alexis Mabille and it's not hard to see why.  His latest collection is simply stunning and a clever take on drafts and mirror images.  He has created each piece in pure white and then an identical piece in vivid colour which makes quite a statement on the runway. 

These gowns are cut and draped so beautifully, they look deceptively simple but are so elegant.  I have to admit I prefer the colour versions over the white, but it really is a clever concept for a collection and reminds me of the way designers create their garments in calico before a final version is made.  The coloured dresses pop that much more when following their white versions.  I adore the last dress in scarlet, it's completely gorgeous and totally covetable.
