HIGHLIGHTS OF HAUTE COUTURE WEEK SPRING/SUMMER 2023

When it comes to fashion, there is nothing more sophisticated than French haute couture - an ultimate symbol of luxury made with extreme attention to detail.


Alexis Mabille, an official member of The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, is one of the most interesting designers who is very skilful at mixing various influences together and creating one-of-the-kind contemporary looks. Known for his passion for style and beauty, Alexis offers a refreshing take on traditional elements and a concept of femininity. The final effect is mesmerising - chic, precisely cut designs with a sporty-chic attitude and cosmopolitan allure.


Let's have a closer look at the Spring/Summer 2023 collection presented at the Haute Couture Week on January 24, 2023 in Paris.

As gold continues to be one of the most sought-after colours of 2023, Alexis Mabille collection features unique colour combinations and plays with contrasting textures to create a perfect balance between sophistication and natural casual attitude. Bold silhouettes and eye-catching shapes combine soft femininity with a strong and powerful image.


Alexis Mabille woman is not only elegant and glamorous but also confident and proud of who she is - those personality traits we are all aiming for. Colourful makeup (done by Lloyd Simmonds) and bold floral accessories add a playful, tropical touch.

Personal Note:

Years ago (in 2012 to be exact), I had a pleasure to interview Alex Mabille during French Couture Week in Singapore. We talked about his design process, favourite shopping spots in Paris, using new technologies in fashion, and his unique concept of the "cool luxury".
