Alexis Mabille or the pastel candy dream

I love haute couture. And I mean really really Love it. So when I got an invitation to the Alexis Mabille fashion show in Paris (my very first invitation at a fashion show in Paris), I jumped for happiness.

I love haute couture and I consider it to be a sort of playground for designers-they get to put their fantasies on paper and then turn them into something real. It’s always very interesting to see how they handle the challenge, jogging between creating art pieces and (alas) wearable pieces. I believe haute couture is more about creating characters, personas, rather than making clothes.

Looking at Mabille’s collection made me want to eat more Frech patisery and drink some more champagne. Pastel tones and delicate fabrics, designs meant to enhance the feminine silhouette, a feminine figure that said contemporary princess at play. I appreciated the white hair ( very sensual) and light makeup, suggesting simplicity /purity/ a new start. The collection had a childish feel about it (the ribbons and the fluffy floating gounds) and I loved it.
