Recently I had the opportunity to drop by the Alexis Mabille showroom located in the garment district of New York to view his beautiful 2015 Pre-Fall collection. This Parisian designer who once worked at Yves Saint Laurent, and Christian Dior before starting his own namesake brand is known for his chic incorporation of the traditional bow-tie in his designs and accessories. His Haute Couture gowns have been worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Dita Von Teese, Zoe Saldana and many others. Mabille’s ready-to-wear designs have the ability to capture the feminine woman through the fluidity in his tops, dresses and skirts. He can also cater to the tomboy-chic woman through his precise cut suits, trouser and jackets.
His Pre-Fall collection was inspired by “the art world’s young guard, specifically the dynamic new generation of Parisian gallerist who live between time zones”. The collection was full of great day-to-evening pieces such as jumpsuits, dresses and suiting separates. Mabille chose midnight blue, purple and variations of violet as the main colors, but also added a bit of floral prints and motifs to the tops.
I noticed that this collection was made for the woman who handles her business, but also loves to have fun with the clothing she wears by playing with fabrics and mixing textures. It was difficult to pick only one piece from this collection that I love, so I chose three! 🙂 The first was a great navy and black jumpsuit that had draping in the front, next was an amazing black blazer, and the last was an adorable floral bow-tie clutch that had my name written all over it! 🙂
Take a peek at some of my favorite pieces from the collection below! Big thanks to Elisa Ly for presenting the collection to me! 🙂
