Alexis Mabille Fall 2015
Athleisure on the catwalk in Paris…could it be? Oui. Alexis Mabille’s Fall 2015 collection definitely had a sportif touch, spiffed up with his signature sultry details. Leggings with a singular leg-lengthening stripe were paired with bonded sweatshirts, dressed up with crisscrosses of dangling chains. Even frocks and elegant tops were fashioned in the sporty fabric. The athletic look was elevated by plenty of strappy heels. The collection had plenty of twists too, both literal and figurative. Knits were woven with a sparkle-enhanced knot print, while sweaters were tied around the neck as makeshift scarves. The simple line of countless dresses and skirts were broken up with a twisted overlay of fabric. While the silhouettes here may not have been anything novel, at least the details were refreshing, from an unconstructed collar to fur trim detail.
