Alexis Mabille first flagship
Coinciding with the presentation of his collection for SS12 yesterday for Paris Fashion Week, up and coming Paris fashion talent Alexis Mabille inaugurates his first flagship, on Rue de Grenelle in the heart of St Germain, alongside neighbours of the caliber of Céline, Maison Martin Margiela or YSL. The elegant space, designed by architects Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet, picks up on traditional bourgeois Parisian elegance – wooden parquet, marble staircase… – and shakes it up with some Hollywood glamour. The designer’s signature bow tie serves as the boutique’s door handle.
