Alexis Mabille’s fall 2013 collection brought the sexy vampire look on the podium at Paris Fashion Week and the result – a sexy, mysterious and a bit Gothic lineup that can totally be rocked my contemporary fashionistas!
The fact that fashion designers turn towards some of the most unexpected sources for inspiration is not exactly a secret, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that for this particular season Mr. Mabille chose to turn towards cinematic 80s looks. ‘The Hunger’, the 1983 movie starring Catherine Deneuve who plays the role of Miriam Blaylock, a stylish neo-Gothic vampire, was the theme that helped spark Alexis Mabille’s creativity and his reinterpretation of the 80s drama fashion styles is worthy of the highest praises although most would have expected something with a little more glamor and a little bit less streetwear drama.
Probably the fact that actress Zoe Saldana sizzled in a glam Alexis Mabille signature dress at the 2013 Oscars created that high craving for uber-glamorous things, but it seems that the designer decided to take a more relaxed yet still sizzling and seductive path to style by opting for more daytime appropriate designs. Now, the fact that the collection was packed with stylish curve-hugging dresses, fabulous skirts, chic shirts all displayed in luxurious fabrics doesn’t mean that the designer overlooked the importance of masculine-inspired outfits as these are a definite must when it comes to contemporary fashion. An array of impeccably tailored trousers, fab classic cut blazers, coats and gorgeous matching separates got the attention of the audience present at the unveiling of the collection at Paris Fashion Week as the attention to detail and the powerful allure exuded by each piece wowed the crowd!
