Alexis Mabille: Petites Seulement (Part 1)

Hello, crazy diamonds!

How have you been lately, huh? Fabulous, I bet!

So, this week we’ll talk a little about Alexis Mabille, the French designer who has worked at Nina Ricci as an intern, designed jewels for Dior, and then turned into the head designer of Dior Homme.

Pretty impressive, isn’t it?

What do you say if we take a look to his Spring-Summer 2013 Haute Couture Collection? Of course, following the tradition of the Top 3.

Here’s the third place:

1) Look A. If you looked for the word “pretty” in the dictionary, you’d find a photo of this dress. C’mon, you have to admit it! It’s the cutest thing on earth! This is what I would call an innocent lady –like garment.

Now, this is one of those dresses that look better on really thin bodies. Why? Because if you’re a woman with hips, you’d break the vertical straight lines the piece is made of. It’s like the body is already shaped on the structure of the dress.

Another reason this dress is best for skinny people, is the fact that the neckline is really low, and with those frills on the shoulders, the chest, and therefore the ribcage, look thicker; thus, you look bigger.

The long sleeves adhered to the arms make them look longer and leaner.

The belt on the waist marks a division that gives the body of the model a sort of hourglass silhouette. If it were up to me, I’d take away the ribbon.

Finally, the pleats on the skirt and the length of it add to the movement some kind of childish motion, due to the playfulness and freedom of the fabric.

The shoes are cute, though it would look better with pointy nude stilettos.

The colour is perfect for the season and one of the classiest on the palette.

Agree?

Gotta go, crazy diamonds, but you go step outside and be childish and cute like today’s design. Shine all over. Dream on. Who knows what might happen if you do ; )

Take care. Lotta Love. Ciao!
