Haute Couture Fall 2010 Coverage: Alexis Mabille

by David Pedroza, Editor-in-Chief

Alexis Mabille has presented his first outing of Haute Couture, without the presences of ready-to-wear, which in the past he has presented in one collection. For Fall 2010, Mabille wanted to maintain a ready-to-wear sensibility by making his collection of mix and match pieces; Each piece can easily be worn with the next one. The silhouettes were simple and reflected a ready-to-wear accessibility, but the workmanship was Haute Couture at its best. Mabille put his workmanship in the spot light, especially with a few stand out pieces such as a black velvet dress, hand-embroidered and beaded by the Atelier Cecile Henri. Presenting only 12 exquisite, precious pieces, which can be ordered with less elaborate ornamentation for the couture client with a smaller budget. Alexis Mabille not only presented a beautiful collection, but a smart one for a new and modern world.
