In the spirit of the holiday (Easter...duh), I wanted to post some of the amazing couture pieces of Alexis Mabille! Each piece is monochromatic and vibrant with large tissue paper roses for headpieces, inspired by a photograph of iconic model Lisa Fonssagrives on a beach where her face is suffused with pink from the sunlight coming through her umbrella. A picture of Christy Turlington by Patrick Demarchelier also provided a bit of inspiration for the awesome headpieces!

A few of my favorites from the collection are:
Hope this collection inspires all the grey scales to brighten up their wardrobes for the Summer and Spring! The Lisa Fonssagrieves photo (along with Carmen Jones) inspired me to wear my red pleated maxi skirt (photo to come). Stay tuned, I will be doing another post on the Alexis Mabille Ready To Wear Spring -Summer 2012 collection...it's pretty amazing!
