Alexis Mabille centered his S/S16 RTW collection around the watermelon. Shades of red in melon, cherry, and ruby contrasted beautifully with pops of turquoise, chartreuse, and emerald. The looks were easy, airy, and flowed with a decidedly feminine sophistication. A slip dress, common trend of this runway season, was created with layers of lace, each a different melon-complimenting color. Many of the looks had obi-style cinched, high waists with flowing satin skirts or loose pants. Single toned rompers and jumpsuits balanced the collection with perfection. Kitschy, but certainly figure enhancing and a fun collection.
