Alexis Mabille-Haute Couture Collection Autumn/ Winter 2014/15 (with interview)

In the adjoining rooms of the Hotel d’Evreux, Alexis Mabille unveils an haute couture collection where lace both adorns and reveals the body, whether it be in a black tie dress or a trouser suit. The designer devotes himself to feminizing certain pieces that originate in the masculine wardrobe, like the fitted taffeta shirt, or for an evening version, a dress with slit sleeves and a shirt front with Chantilly ruffles. A corset under a velvet silk emerald belted sheath dress and another gown with a blood red quilted bustier and cape radiate a sensuality that makes this haute couture extremely desirable. Interview: Alex Mabille:All of this modernity is also here to relax the couture, by perhaps putting a belt on a dress or a bodysuit with a big taffeta skirt, and that’s it. And actually today, haute couture clients are much cooler. I think people need coolness and sensuality, that’s why some robes are very nude, very worked, with lace, like the black tie dress which is completely hand-made in lace and took three weeks of work which we didn’t realise at first, and made us nearly hysterical. You don’t realize it’s a man’s shirt, it’s transparent and chic, with a belt, and that’s perfect. In this collection there isn’t one theme, it is built more like a wardrobe, with a little black sheath dress and a little bit of lace, and a little trouser suit. Working it more as a base for a wardrobe where you come to have fun afterwards. Music from the show
