Alexis Mabille- WOMENSWEAR collection Autumn-Winter 2016/17 in Paris (with interview)

Location: Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, Paris Inspiration: The woman compared to animals such as a pussy cat, playful and mischievous, sensual and naughty Focus: The cat print that is found as a camouflage or the "cat kiss" of two cats in black silk velvet are embroidered on a dress in midnight point d’esprit tulle + Tuxedo reworked in sequins or in pink velvet or silk + Lace on a blouse, on the edges of a long skirtNote: the blue and black stripes, on a long skirt, or in red & black sequins, notably on the tuxedo for the grand evenings... Interview from Alexix Mabille: The collection is inspired by the phrase ‘life is a catwalk’, which tells us lots of things especially of how I like to dress women a bit like ‘pussy cats’.Yes, it’s a funny way to show this truly naughty and cheeky side of some girls, as lots of women are active, dynamic and modern but they’re always so sensual. The cat print designed a bit like a cat’s shadow was inspired by the Russian artist Aleksey Bedny. All his work consists of quite demented animal shadows, appearing like a kind of camouflage so it’s a glimpse to that. There is a very aggressive and sensual attitude in this collection, which is at the same time very sportswear with a mix of masculinity and femininity, but always using couture fabrics.Music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
