Ever since Alexis Mabille's spectacular arrival into the world of fashion, he has been well received. This season, however, he has come a little unstuck.

The Lyon-born designer played with layers and graphic shapes on bi-coloured jumpsuits and dresses. In terms of style, the two-tone collection, which was an homage to Russian painter Malevitch, was somewhat lacking.

His reworked signature bows (found on necklines and oversized versions on clutch bags) are a plus point but we're not convinced by the immense evening dresses or pompous garments scattered with rhinestone.
