We are used to seeing long, hand-embroidered dresses paired with elegant pumps. Alexis Mabille in his new collection reminded us of another, no less relevant way. The designer suggests wearing outfits in the spirit of the Victorian era with sneakers.
Alexis often uses motifs from the 18th-19th centuries in her collections. The spring-summer 2021 season is no exception. There are dresses with fluffy skirts made of heavy brocade, which in one of the images he decorates with light lace, and gold embroidery on the vest in combination with voluminous flounces. Interesting fact: before the release of the collection, Alexis Mabille posted a vintage image of the maids on his instagram, captioning it “Inspiration” and putting in the hinting hashtag # SS21. Now, among the dresses, we see three black and white options with capes, sleeves, a collar and lace inserts. A direct link to the reference published in his account.
Coming back to styling, thank the designer for a fresh take on the combination of athletic shoes and red carpet outfits. This is really a great trick for anyone who feels insecure in heels.
