Show Report: Alexis Mabille Spring/Summer 2012

It looked as though Alexis Mabille had lots of fun putting together his spring/summer 2012 collection. Light colours, easy fabrics and playful elements created looks as summery as the scent of delicate field flowers, which were to be found on the guests’ benches, in the models’ hair and printed on the fabrics. This was a very welcome change after seeing so much stiff and heavy material this week. High-waisted shorts, shirt dresses and crêpe suits with fringe elements accentuated Mabille’s liberated touch, which was admired by burlesque queen Dita Von Teese, who revealed: ‘I love Alexis’s sense of playfulness, the fun and glamour in his creations.’
