Alexis Mabille Paris Fashion Week SS18
Spring is, after all, a time of fertility and rebirth. So it’s probably no surprise that Alexis Mabille began with florals (as in, actual flowers), to complement sheer (sometimes transparent) separates, super-breezy silhouettes, in (traditional) girl-baby pinks and boy-baby blues.
As the show progressed, the looks gradually morphed into angular silhouettes, tightly cinched at the waist, with more glam-worthy fabrics, and even some Spanish-style lacework.

One of our favorite looks was a voluminous striped dress cinched with a giant bow, with giant lapels and red inner piping. Our other, a white floral lace dress seen in Look 19, seemed to bookend a collection poised somewhere between spring innocence and some of the more worldly pursuits of evening.
