For Spring Summer 2018, Alexis Mabille took a sporty direction, with generously cut silhouettes, and a sense of romanticism. From the masculine shirting, to the cinched in waists, the collection had a couture edge, but with an everyday feel.

 

Stripes were a main theme throughout as echoed in the invite, whether in the form of pleating, colour bright accents, or candy striped pale blue. Starting with a tuxedo dress, the collection had a clear Parisienne vibe, moving on to masculine shirting, high waisted trousers and paper bag waists. As the show continued, there was an abundance of lace and tiers of ruffles, together with accents of gold and black for that sense of after dark glamour.

 

However, the standout piece from the show had to be the oversized earrings. Cascading blooms adorned the models, for an added springtime finish.
