Now an official member of Fédération Française de la Couture, Alexis Mabille devoted his Spring 2013 haute couture collection to “craftsmanship”. This is one of the most important reasons a woman would buy haute couture, to acquire a piece of clothing that is made to perfection in her own measurements.  Mabille’s collection did speak to its audience; a lot of hand-work, and fine fabrics, with his whimsical and delicate aesthetic. The show started with girlish confections, of contemporary separates such as Lyon Lace embroidered tops, satin cigarette pants, and frilly organza skirts. The rest of the “exists” consisted of evening wear one can easily see on the red carpet. Just recently, Zoe Saldana turned out in look 16 from Mabille’s Spring collection, for the Oscars, a grey couture confection in tiers of organza that created an ombre look. Signature Alexis Mabille bows adorned several pieces, with our over powering the looks. Lace encrusted most designs, while strapless bustier gowns remained sexy, yet girlish. The Mabille smoking was paired with gowns or made into long dresses them selves, a staple in every Alexis Mabille collection.  Alexis Mabille haute couture collection was a perfect selection of sweet confections, like  magasin de patisserie, serving the prettiest creations any woman would love to wear and proving he is a true couturier.
