It's only women who do not know how to dress
that are afraid of colors. A dress may be brilliant
without vulgarity and quiet without being dull.
Marcel Proust, Remembrance of Things Past.
For his Summer 2012 Couture collection, Alexis Mabille
interprets the words of Proust with a bouquet of femmes-fleurs.
Whether long-stemmed or a corolla, she likes monochrome ;
she masters the science of color to express her vitality.
Each shade voices a state of mind in which energy is true therapy.
