Alexis Mabille Spring 2016 Collection

The Alexis Mabille Spring 2016 collection  was inspired by a watermelon cocktail called the Sandia Smash. The designer also cited the drawings of Mose Tolliver and Alekos Fassianos as inspirations for his naïf watermelon print. A red sweatshirt embroidered with a semicircle of black pips, paired with a sweeping coral silk skirt, made for a witty yet subtle variation on the theme.

The color combinations were bold and bright such as a coral silk jacket with lime green and turquoise pants. Also when used in smaller doses, the zesty hues packed a pleasant visual punch. Shirtdresses, lace-trimmed blouses and high-waisted crepe pants all made for nifty additions to a summer wardrobe. And this fun, flirty attitude was reflected in the season’s accessory: a micro-backpack in duchesse satin that dangled from the waist.
