HAUTE COUTURE... ALEXIS MABILLE
In a stroke of genius, as I see it, Mr. Mabille created a small amount of styles and multiplied that times 2. Each piece was shown in white and the companion, its twin, was either shown in color or in print. What makes this most impressive is that with limited styles he has managed to make ‘the twins” fraternal and not identical. He shows a deft had here and has a great comprehension for the couture. There is no question that Mr. Mabille has made a name for himself in a very short span of time and he will definitely be one of the greats for the 21st century. The clothes tend to be clean and with little ornamentation but yet very very beautiful and appealing.
