Alexis MabilleSpring Summer 2015 Paris

Runway Review
9/24/2014 TeamFWP

“My woman’s sport is fashion,” Alexis Mabille proclaimed in the notes to his spring show. Picking up on the athleticwear references he sprinkled into his fall collection, Mabille took the staples of a boxer’s wardrobe — hooded satin robes, sweatshirts and shorts with elasticized waists — and gave them a sophisticated spin for evening.

The robes appeared as short or long satin dresses in muted shades, such as navy, sky blue and pale lichen green, lightened with contrasting trims. Sweatshirts included a blue jersey version with fluid satin-crepe pajama sleeves; it featured giant eyelets at the waist, with an oversize military chain worn as a belt.

Going against his better instincts, Mabille also showed a selection of styles in sheer mesh, such as a minidress with a lacy, scalloped hem — worn over a pale-gold sequined bikini. These, and the orgasmic moaning on the soundtrack, were the only false notes in this polished display.
