Runway Report: Alexis Mabille Spring 2016 Couture

After presenting his collection via a lookbook last season Alexis Mabille was back with his intimate runway show for Spring 2016 Couture. I continue to love the classic glamour that Alexis shows in his collections. While the looks rarely push the envelope the looks are also extremely chic. On the press release a single quote from Emily Dickinson explained the inspiration behind the collection, "Beauty - be not caused - it is." All the looks in this collection seek to show the feminine beauty of a woman and without too many things that can detract from a woman's beauty this collection falls to one of my favorite Alexis Mabille collections. My favorite look from the collection was the white long sleeved double breasted Le Smoking inspired tuxedo sheath gown with ostrich feathers on the hem, the sad thing is that Lea Seydoux wore the featherless version of this gown on the red carpet at the Spectre premiere in Copenhagen. I can picture a host of beautiful women wearing this collection like Lady Gaga, Janelle Monae, Tilda Swinton, Charlize Theron, Kate Beckinsale, Uma Thurman, Jessica Chastain, Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, and Marion Cotillard all come to mind when I am flipping through the images of this collection.
