The Alexis Mabille Fall 2014 Couture collection is made up of visually striking dresses that are not made for every woman. Although every woman will appreciate the work and detail put into each design, they are eclectic and eccentric, in a purely elegant way. With sweeping lines, button-down shirt accents and lots of shimmery satin material, the gowns make bold statements in only the most interesting of ways.

Inspired by menswear, the designer opened up his Alexis Mabille Fall 2014 Couture show by quoting Susan Sontag, "What is the most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine." Although not a groundbreaking concept, the elements are intriguingly applied.
