Alexis Mabille AW13
Alexis Mabille’s AW13 collection began with looks that had a distinctive Teddy Boy feel. Embellished collar tips and thin ribbon neckties, knee length coats and sharp tailoring on everything from waistcoats to trousers continued the theme. From greys, nudes, blacks and blues, the collection moved into hotter colours and more feminine, racier designs – a bright scarlet, a healthy dose of leopard print, Star Wars-esque metallic gowns and artfully placed visible zips.
Many of the looks were belted in a ‘T’ shape and flourishes such as the gauzy capelet, the wide ruched ribbon necklines and the bold linear graphics gave all the looks an individual edge. We loved the second skin trousers with 3D metallic embellishment running down the outside of the legs – complete with matching jacket – as well as the bold use of tassels.
