Paris Fashion Week: Alexis Mabille Spring/Summer 15

Sports day

"My woman's sport is fashion," Alexis Mabille said in his show notes for Spring/Summer 15

Referencing the slick athletic-wear references that have punctuated the season this time around, Mabille took the staples of a boxer's wardrobe – including hooded satin robes, sweatshirts and shorts with elastic waists – and gave them a chic overhaul for eveningwear.

They appeared as short or long satin dresses in a muted palette, such as navy, sky blue and pale "lichen green", with contrasting trims. There were also sweatshirts with an oversize military chain worn as a belt.

Changing gear from his more refined couture background, Mabille also showed a selection of styles in sheer mesh, and a minidress with a lacy, scalloped hem worn over a pale-gold sequin bikini.
