BEAUTY: Clothing--Alexis Mabille

The Tudor time period of Henry VIII served as muse for Alexis Mabille's '12-'13 FW collection that featured quilted leather, velvet, lace and skin tight pants with appliqués that gave the effect of thigh high boots. Of unusual note is his use of peplums, a traditionally feminine fashion device...

It sure looks like the Montague men got dressed up for a night out in Paris. I half expect to see rapiers dangling from their waists!
