Viewers got to see the new Haute Couture collection for fall/winter by Alexis Mabille up close via a virtual presentation today.
The collection titled “Attitude” consisted of 26 Haute Couture looks and was presented in a shocking pink box.
Ahead of the video reveal the looks were on display in his Galerie Vivienne space in Paris for those who were able to visit and get a closer look at the collection.
These pieces were designed for today’s modern woman. Bold colours, oversized cuts and complicated motifs adorned looks inspired by old Hollywood. There were embroideries that nodded to the abstract motifs of tapestry artist Jean Lurçat, highlighting the hours of work put in by artisans during the confinement period.
The theme of “Attitude” was conveyed through the looks. Mabille insisted that these looks don’t need to relate to each other but are more representing different women in conversation.
At a time when it’s been difficult for couturiers to access some of the materials that they would usually choose Mabille openly expressed that he created the looks from what was available to him and the designs came from there.
But the real “Attitude” of this collection was about positivity and boldness during a time of crisis.
