Spring 2014 Couture : Giambattista Valli, Alexis Mabille and Chanel

The spring couture shows at Paris continued with exceptional collections from Giambattista Valli with his floral magnificence, Alexis Mabille with the artful elegance and Chanel with the icy and young collection. They are stellar and very red carpet worthy! Giambattista Valli It's a collection that any girl would dream off but rather than going the pastel route, Valli used striking contrasts that made the collection bold.

Fall 2012 Couture Alexis Mabille

Alexis Mabille's couture collection presented a fantasy of sorts. I could almost associate each piece with a fairy tale character. But my quirky observations aside, the collection certainly has a bold, strong and confident feel to it. I loved the metallic gowns with a duo chrome feel. I love the black dress with the keyhole cut neck with embellishment. The gowns with the lined cape look beautiful and mysterious. ; ; ; Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more
