Perhaps you’ve seen these shoes before?
Mabille’s Fall Couture 2009 collection is quite dreamy, and that is exactly how he intended it to be. Mabille’s inspiration was drawn from bedroom textiles and bedclothes. Compared to his Spring 2009 collection, Mabille’s Fall looks were a tad more cohesive. He still has a thing or two to learn about putting on a tightly edited show, but the foundation of his work is improving. Bows seem to be his thing, making appearances throughout this collection and past. It is quite obvious that Mabille is thinking in terms of business; he bases his accessories collections around these little bows and presents RTW and couture styled looks together. However, I feel that Mabille lacked the showstoppers that are expected during couture shows, save for the cut-out dress shown below.
A few emerging trends also made an appearance during his show. As evident in the photographs below, Mabille tapped into the exposed lingerie and bedroom attire, hooded suits, and elaborate/adorned legwear trends.
