Daughter of Psyche and Eros, the goddess Voluptas inspired designer Alexis Mabille, a woman whose beauty is striking and emotional, at once earthly and celestial. To clothe her, Mabille let his desire for a cinematographic and poetic allure, for a moving architecture, for structured flow. To highlight her sensuality,
He wanted feminine lines with his masculine twist, soft and voluptuous materials, of emblematic drapes. Mabille worked contrasting colors with relish to reveal her multiple facets, cutting midnight and blacks with springtime pastels, floral mirages, and sparkling sequins. This collection is the designer’s amorous gaze for divine women.
