BATHING BEAUTY:Alexis Mabille is moving from the boudoir to the bathroom.
The French designer, known for his lacy slipdresses and slinky pajamas, has designed a bathroom for sanitary equipment and furnishings specialist Jacob Delafon. Featuring sensual lines and luxurious materials, the design will be unveiled at the Maison et Objet trade show in Paris in September.
“I’ve always been passionate about decoration and interiors. It’s been my hobby besides my own line — that’s why I’m delighted to work with Jacob Delafon creating my ideal bathroom. I want not only the most exceptional pieces, but a very personal concept dedicated to women,” Mabille said.
Fans of the designer include Dita Von Teese, who has been hanging out with Mabille in Paris this week. The two visited the Museum of the Legion of Honor, and he shot a video of her modeling one of her own dressing gown designs at La Réserve hotel.
