Alexis Mabille returned to the runway with a playful collection that combined relaxed silhouettes and lingerie detail.
With a return to the runway at his favoured venue, the Salle Pleyel, Alexis Mabille toned down the colour palette and relaxed the silhouettes in places with his spirited spring collection, entitled ‘Desire.’
In tones of blush, black and white, he played with proportions at length.
The first look exhibits the shape of a sweatshirt as a transparent lace dress embroidered with swirls of ribbons. Its outsized form is worn off the shoulder and its elongated sleeves hang loose below the arms.
Elsewhere, the sportswear staple was made from black lamé, wrapped and knotted around the waist to form the designer’s signature, glamorous bow.
Shirting shapes were re-conceptualised and used in a diversity of ways. A piqué silk tailcoat robe streamed with buttons down the back, while collar shapes were used to create giant flaps atop a flowing striped dress or graphic shoulder details on a bodice.
These fluid pieces were built around a canvas of eccentric lingerie-inspired pieces like bodysuits and bustiers in allover sequins or lace.
