Alexis Mabille at the Haute Couture Paris Shows

Alexis Mabille portrait taken in July 2009 at Alexis Mabille’s show-room in Paris by Benjamin Kanarek for Vogue Brasil.

Alexis Mabille will be showing his new Haute Couture collection tomorrow morning in Paris.

Alexis Mabille discovered fashion at a very young age, attracted and inspired by fabrics, costumes, antique jewlery,and museums he visited as a child. As a teenager, he would put together theatrical pieces as well as outfits for his friends and family. Graduating from Paris’ Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in 1997, he undertook apprenticeships at the Couture Houses of Ungaro and Nina Ricci. He then joined the team at Christian Dior. At Dior, he created exquisite fine jewelry for Women and Men, both respectively overseen by John Galliano and by Hedi Slimane.

As a kind of a quirky signature, Alexis can always be seen wearing a bow tie. In 2005, he embarked on his own personal adventure and created his own Fashion House and decided that the bow tie which accompanied him thus far would become his lucky charm, his special signature. Since, doing so he has utilized bow ties in novel ways in all of his collections.

Alexis Mabille has already gained quite a following amongst Celebrities: Keira Knightley, Dita Von Teese and the French First Lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy…

SCHULYR’S CLOSET PICKS: Black Poncho Dress

SCHULYRS CLOSET PICKS: Black Poncho Dress

I think I may have officially given up on becoming a Photoshop expert, but this works for now!  I invaded Shopbop today seeking out a new black dress, and this poncho dress by Kain Label caught my eye. It’s got a little white inset on the side, a pocket on the front, and is my favorite draped fit!  I decided to pair it with some great bangles, a spiked pendant necklace, Jeffrey Campbell buckle boots (to DIE for!), and a studded bag by Novella Royale. You can get all of the products  at Shopbop here:

Remember Clarissa Explains It All? So did Marc Jacobs this season… his latest Louis Vuitton bag boasts Melissa Joan Hart’s 1990’s Nick character and her mix-matched style to a T. How else does one justify such insanity? (more…)

T CRITIC: Brian Lictenberg/Blood Is The New Black | Names Tee

Hedi Slimane, Martin Margiela,  Nicolas Ghesquière,  Hussein Chalayan, and Vivienne Westwood.

BITNB is doing the whole ‘boyfriend tee’ thing now and that’s just how I like my clothes. (One size fits most!)

This tee is only $38, a total steal! Buy it here

I was lucky enough to attend Rad Hournai’s flawless Spring 2010 runway show back in the fall, but it wouldn’t have been so flawless if it weren’t for the sweat and tears that went into the collection and production. Check out these backstage clips from Hourani’s Spring 2010 collection!

LOOKBOOK: Doo.Ri Pre-Fall 2010

LOOKBOOK: Doo.Ri Pre Fall 2010 Doo-Ri Chung used her Pre-Fall 2010 collection as a practice run for the Fall, playing around with prints prints, silhouettes and the everlasting “no no” combination of black and bold royal blue. The Lookbook really doesn’t do the collection justice, hiding the minute, but oh so necessary details that Doo.Ri is known for.

LOOKBOOK: Vera Wang Pre-Fall 2010

LOOKBOOK: Vera Wang Pre Fall 2010 With a surplus of blazers and suits, Vera Wang needed something to feminize her Pre-Fall 2010 collection. Leave it up to some sequins, bold color and tinsel to do the trick, because Wang’s collection shifted from a safe, structured daywear one to a nighttime ready line in the blink of an eye. Loving the knee-high socks and heeled booties combo!

LOOKBOOK: Alexander Wang Pre Fall 2010

Alexander Wang can do no wrong. We might have just transitioned into Fall 2009 garb, but with future threads like this, I’m itching for next fall! For his Pre-Fall 2010 collection, Wang kept the androgynous and sleek look in full effect. Keep your eyes peeled for oversized tuxedo vests, bulky knits, sultry sheers, leather bustiers, short rompers and some asymmetrical, ribbed pieces. Wang’s plethora of trousers certainly encompass the theme of his version of a working girl, but behind a desk or bopping downtown, chic never looked so good.
